FACEBOOK has been looking back over the past year in articles shared through the social network, and has compiled the 40 most shared pieces.

Three of the top 40 articles concern Steve Jobs, while others listed include coverage of Zodiac sign date changes, the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, and the sudden death of Jackass star Ryan Dunn.

The 40 articles are listed from just six news sites: CNN, Yahoo, The Huffington Post, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal (which was cited for one story).

Check out the top 10 articles shared on Facebook this year:
