It is common knowledge that men and women are very different in every possible way. That’s probably why we love each other so much. Well, it seems that social media isn’t the exception that proves the rule because we can say with absolute certainty that men and women don’t see eye to eye when it comes to the social media platforms.
The difference between men and women
In fact, it has been verified that men’s and women’s brains don’t work identically and, even though, the results are usually the same, we take different roads depending on the fact that you are a man or a woman. Emphasis on USUALLY.
And I say emphasis because if you take a look at the infographic below, created by Internet Service Providers, you will see that, in this case, the two genders don’t use social media equally.
The Gendered Social Media Infographic
Actually, according to this infographic, 71% of women in the U.S. use social media site vs 62% of men. Furthermore, almost 130 million Americans are surfing social media networks which are more than the population of Japan. Every month, only 3 minutes are spent on Google+ compared to 405 minutes on Facebook.
You will discover many other fascinating details about the subject. It is always interesting to learn about the battle of the sexes, especially when it concerns social media. After all, it is really true that men are from Mars and women are from Venus!
Also, you will find on the graphic the major social media platforms where men and women percentages are at their best. Here are the different social networks for each gender:
