November 15, 2012 --

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- Tynt, the leader in sharing solutions for publishers and content creators, today disclosed research across thousands of web publishers. Among other top findings, the data revealed that copy & paste is the most prevalent method by which users share text, images, and URLs across the web. This common behavior stems from users highlighting text or images on a web page, copying it to their clipboard, and then pasting it into emails, blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and more.

Copy & paste comprises 82% of all content sharing, 4.5x more than share buttons. The study was conducted to help publishers and content creators better understand the relative impact of sharing via copy & paste on web site traffic.

"The exponential rise of content sharing is often incorrectly attributed to sharing buttons on a page," said Greg Levitt, GM of Tynt's Publisher Solutions and Co-Founder of 33Across. "In reality, content sharing is caused by a far more universal user behavior: copy & paste -- the most intuitive way people curate and share the exact content that they want across the web. It's surprising, but the old highlight and right click is more popular than ever."
