  1. Most content sharing happens on Facebook & Twitter
  2. Users click social links at an equal rate — regardless of the URL
  3. Shortened links have a similar lifespan regardless of when the content is initially posted
  4. Brand engagement peaks on weekends
  5. Millennial generation shares the most content
  6. Facebook offers the most referral traffic
