A new study broke down how men and women in the U.S. use social media. It found women are more likely to use social media, un-friend someone, and update their status daily than men. They’re also more likely to use Twitter and Facebook. Men are more likely to use Reddit, Google Plus, and LinkedIn, and are more likely to be embarrassed by something they post.
Here’s how it breaks down…
#1.) Women are more likely to join social media sites than men. 56% of social media users in the U.S. are female.
#2.) Women are more likely to have un-friended someone, 67% to 58%.
#3.) Men are TWICE as likely as women to be EMBARRASSED by something they posted on a social media site.
#4.) 64% of Twitter users in the U.S. and 58% of Facebook users in the U.S. are female. So are 82% of Pinterest users.
#5.) 84% of Reddit users are male, as are 71% of Google Plus users and 63% of LinkedIn users.
#6.) Women are more likely to update their Facebook status daily, 18% to 11%. Women are also more likely to comment on photos and other people’s status updates.
#7.) Women are more ACTIVE social media users. Women in the U.S. make 99 MILLION more visits per month to social media sites than men.
