    Providing a link to content is a pretty standard way of pointing your friends, family, or colleagues to an interesting article you read, a funny picture you saw, or information you want to share.

Getty captioned the photo: LANCASTER, OH - OCTOBER 12:...

    SEATTLE (AP) — Shares of Getty Images Inc. soared Tuesday after the seller of stock photography and video footage acknowledged it is exploring strategic alternatives and said it retained Goldman Sachs as a financial adviser.
