    I'm always intrigued when I can get statistics from a reliable source about Internet usage. This infographic makes it easy to see and compare how the proverbial differences between men and women affect social media. The one glaring omission is Google+, which has taken off like gang busters. In fact, given Google's inherent advantages as a social medium platform based on the world's leading search engine, I expect that growth to accelerate. I'd love to see the figures for men versus women users of it now.

      Nice comment John. You bring up a great point on the growth of Google+. One interesting thing is that for people who use various Google platforms (gmail, etc) joining Google+ is practically automatic, unlike the other social media platforms (like Twitter,Tumblr, etc) where users have to actively create a profile to join that service. I would be really interested to know the breakdown of users on Google+, but more specifically whether men vs. women are more active users of it.
