The shared facts are only displayed in the Sharees' record with the icon that shows it was a shared fact. The facts are not linked to the Sharee, just the Principal. This allows roles to be assigned to the Sharees with separate sentences and separate notes for the Sharee in a Narrative report.
I do use Shared facts for some things but not for any fact I want the Sharee linked to, i.e. census or facts which need to be included in a gedcom to share with someone else.
A shared fact can be very useful when printed in a narrative report or shown on a person's Timeline view.
I share the marriage fact with both spouses when I want the marriage printed in the Individual section of a Narrative report. This works well when you have more than one marriage and children by each marriage and it may be many pages before the marriage sections are printed. I will also share the marriage to other spouses and the births of children from those marriages in a spouse's record.
I also may share a child's birth with grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. if those person's raised the child.
