An infographic about social media with a few surprises

women-use-social-media-more-often-and-in-more-ways-than-men-infographic

women-use-social-media-more-often-and-in-more-ways-than-men-infographicWe found this great and very informative Infographic about social media that might surprise you.

It reveals that women are more active on most of the major social media sites than men. We have known for a long time that women were more active on Pinterest because of the visual look of the site.

The Infographic that was put together by ‘Ruby Media Corporation’ looks at the use of social media platforms Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Tumbler and Twitter comparing the use of men and women in the US.

You will probably come up with your own reasons for why women are more active on the social media platforms mentioned above, LinkedIn being the exception.

Is it because men are possibly more career oriented and women are more family oriented? This is a very general look at things but could be an avenue for exploration.

What is your opinion?

Remember to share this with others so they can also use their social media effectively.
