NewsWhip also pulled out the data for shares on just LinkedIn, revealing some interesting differences.  While total sharing on the platform was well behind Facebook and Twitter, LinkedIn users clearly showed a preference for less light-hearted and more tech-oriented content: top publishers on LinkedIn included Forbes, Mashable, The New York Times, BBC and Business Insider.
