Sharing things you haven’t read

Maybe you’ve heard that most articles shared on Twitter or Facebook haven’t been read in full or at all. When I’ve heard that repeated, it’s usually been with a tone of criticism, maybe about laziness, or vacuousness, or just about how something is ruining everything. 

But it could also be something really positive. 

I think it’s about the emotion you feel at the time. You want to share with people the thing that made you fee the thing you feel right now. And that desire rid share is the strongest when’s the emotion you feel is the strongest. 

Does it matter if that feeling is strongest only after you read the title? It’s not just the article you’re sharing, but how the article made you fee that you hope to share with others.
