explanation, please

Could someone explain what "52 shares" or "89 shares" is all about? It's that little thing that comes up at the beginning of an article to the left-hand side.

Mods? Anybody?

Does it mean it was "shared" on Facebook or some other social media? I'm not that tech savy as AN is my only internet addiction:saint:.

I've noticed that it will sometimes 'roll up' increasing numbers quickly as the thread opens.

Just asking.

So like 52 shares has been shared with other sites (FB et al) some 52 times?

Makes sense. TY
