The social media platform has been the subject of criticism over its lack of transparency in the wake of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
But a new study has found that over 50 percent of its users have friends in common and the social media network has been a significant source of inspiration for some.
The study, which analyzed 1.5 million Instagram posts and 2.4 million Facebook posts from users in the United States and Canada, found that more than 60 percent of Instagrammers share at least one post that’s shared by another user.
More than 40 percent of Facebook users shared a post with someone else.
Facebook also has a thriving community of influencers who create content and create brands.
The authors of the study say that the “high degree of sharing” on Instagram and Facebook could be one reason for the high rate of sharing.
“The sharing and sharing patterns are very similar across platforms, which could help explain why the platforms have such high rates of sharing,” said the study’s lead author, Michael Schatz, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
“This is a reflection of how the platforms work.
The users have shared this content before, and it’s shared often.
That could be an important contributor to why people are sharing on these platforms.”
The researchers say that there are plenty of reasons to love Instagram and share with friends.
Users may post photos of themselves with friends or friends of friends.
They may use their favorite Instagram accounts to keep in touch with their favorite friends or get updates about upcoming events.
They can share their favorite sports teams or celebrities or the latest news or news items.
“I think there are two reasons why people choose Instagram,” said Schatz.
“The first reason is to have a good relationship with others.
They are able to interact and connect with their friends more easily.
The second reason is that the platform allows them to see the community that is in the world.”
The authors of this study say the “low barrier to entry” and the “highly visible” social media platforms are “two of the main reasons people are on Instagram.”
Schatz told Business Insider that he hopes the findings help educate people about what’s going on in the digital space and why they should care about it.
“People are really curious about the impact that social media has and how it affects their lives,” he said.
“There is so much to learn from how people share and use this medium.
It is one of the most powerful tools for the people that are doing this work.”
