On Tuesday, Facebook revealed its most shared articles in 2011.
The people at Facebook zoned in on stories shared only in the U.S.
"The stories range from cute to thought provoking and represent the type of news people have been sharing and discovering with friends in 2011," according to Facebook.
Some are videos, some are home movies, some are op ed pieces from newspapers. And the No. 40 story is a November 2011 New York Times article titled, "Steve Jobs Patents."
Another Facebook users' favorite is of twins boys Sam and Ren, 17-month-old, holding a conversation with one another. Making each other laugh, think and react to each other's remarks, or baby talk.
Then there's the emotional and touching story about the funeral of a fallen Navy Seal who lost his life in Afghanistan. His funeral, attended by 1,500 in Iowa, included his dog who laid by his casket during the service.
The YouTube video has been seen by 6,631,141. See it here.
