    Yes it’s quite true that men are from Google+ and and women are from Pinterest. However, I’m not sure about the fact that there are more women on Twitter than men. In the past couple of years, I have observed that there are more men on Twitter than women especially in India. I have also noticed that there are more men indulging in interactions, mentions and retweets. So, if the ladies are in a majority, they have certainly managed to maintain a low profile i.e. they have been a silent majority!

    Thanks for the statistics. As a female, I value Pinterest the most because vivid presentation of information that I want works for me. In marketing, it speaks how we design images and properly distribute them to what social media best approves of your content. Informational Images and infographics play well in Pinterest, while videos and gifs in Google+. But don’t take my word for it, I still believe it’s in a matter of preference and your style of delivering content to your own target market.

    Very nice post!

    It seems like things haven't changed since I posted similar stories earliest last year in my blog (So, what's up with men? and another on How Americans are keeping in touch).

    We also have a similar gender schism with our birthday card app: about 80% of our users are female. And the vast majority of the men using it are age 18-34. It does actually match with the figures from the greetings cards industry that shows women are the main demographic when it comes to trying to make others feel good.

    Now, I'm male. And while I'm ok to admit that sometimes I very poorly express my sensitivity or fail to act on that very basic human trait that is empathy, I always have in me - at the very least - the interest and drive to improve.

    So I can't help but keep wondering what's really up with us...
