Please do not share a PDF of the article. It is far better to share a persistent URL to the database record for the article instead. For one thing, some journals strictly limit or prohibit re-distribution of their content. Also PDF-sharing is not reflected in library usage statistics. When someone shares a PDF, our usage statistics only see that one use, even though many people will actually read the article. When someone shares the persistent URL to the article, our statistics compiler sees an accurate representation of the traffic to that article/journal. This generates important data that we use to make decisions on journal cancellation versus re-subscription.
