Top 3: Our most shared stories from last week

Below are our Top 3 shared stories from last week, based on social media figures.

We also break down some details.

The week’s most shared story, about an expansion at The Tap Room in Patchogue, knocked off the previous most shared story of all-time on GreaterPatchogue.com by a wide margin. (See numbers below.)

And the second-most shared story last week, about two Bellporters who purchased and rebuilt Painters’ Restaurant in Brookhaven after a fire in 2012, has put itself firmly in the Top 3 of all-time.

(We must note that the Painters story is by far GreaterPatchogue.com’s most read story ever.)

Remember, sharing is caring! And reading is pretty good.
