1034: Share Buttons
Title text: The only post to achieve perfect balance between the four was a hilarious joke about Mark Zuckerberg getting caught using a pseudonym to sneak past the TSA.
This comic is a commentary on what sort of articles work best on different social networks. The comedy article is shared most on Twitter because everyone on Twitter considers themselves some sort of 140-character comedian. (140 characters is the limit of a single tweet.)
Conspiracy theory articles that are against the Christian Right and for Wikipedia play well on Reddit as those type of articles get the most votes up and the most comments.
Boycott Facebook articles (or other Facebook "is changing their terms of services to...") are very popular on Facebook, which is always obviously ironic. Also, this is the highest number of shares on Google plus, Google's fledgling social network. One of the punchlines, of course, is that Google Plus is struggling and not popular overall.
And the last article gets very few shares, because who wants to admit they are reading an article about a Realdoll, which has been referenced twice previously in xkcd comics. As is said in the Flying Cars explanation, Realdoll is known as "the world's finest lovedoll". You can probably figure it out from there.
