The old adage that men are from Mars and women are from Venus needs to be amended to reflect the current social (media) climate. According to Mashable, women are from Facebook and Twitter, and men are from LinkedIn and Google+.
There is a gender divide in the social media world and women are queens of the universe. Women post more frequently on the major social media platforms, Facebook and Twitter, and are more active on Zynga — the largest online gaming network. The majority of the women using Zynga — who comprise 60 percent of overall users — are over 55.
However, men rule the less-populated professional social networks, including Google+ and LinkedIn.
Males reign on Reddit (84 percent) and females control Pinterest (82 percent). Check out Mashable’s infographic to the right for more statistics.
