What types of people are most likely to share content online? And why are they sharing it?

The following infographic by StatPro categorizes people into six types of sharers: hipsters, careerists, altruists, connectors, boomerangs, and selectives.

Careerists are sharers who "are savvy business networkers and are more likely to share content on LinkedIn," states StatPro, whereas altruists "are helpful, reliable, thoughtful, connected, and only use email to share."

The group that use social networks and emails are selectives, who are "resourceful, careful, and thoughtful." However, hipsters are the least likely of the groups to use email.

The reasons people share online content are various, but the main reason is "value and entertainment."

To find out more about why people share content and how, check out the following infographic. (You can also take this online quiz to find out what type of social sharer you are.)
