Why People Like, Share and Comment on Facebook [Infographic]

Of Facebook's 1.25 billion monthly active users, 44% Like their friends' posts at least once a day — and 29% do it multiple times a day. That's hundreds of millions of people interacting with content on the social network on a daily basis.
