The method calls a method in a base class to set a property that indicates whether a particular instance of a control is shared. In the Web Parts control set, a shared control means a control that is visible to all users of a page. This is in contrast to a per-user control, which is visible only to the specific user who added the control to the page.
For more on personalization and shared versus per-user controls, see Web Parts Personalization Overview.
