It's different for different objects.

#### Explanation:

The gravitational force between two objects is "directly proportional to the product of their masses" and "inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers".
$F \propto M \cdot m$
$F \propto \left(\frac{1}{r} ^ 2\right)$

So the force of gravity between Earth and other objects of different masses is different. Since this force is always attractive, it's principal effect is to pull that object towards itself.
