Tweeting more for Chicks

As this is a business focused site we’d blush to suggest that social networking sites might be used to develop romantic liaisons – but some research from the Pew Research centre suggests that if you’re looking for a member of the opposite sex, some sites will offer more choice than others. (And, depending on your choice, more or less competition).
The Centre’s study ‘Social Networking sites and our lives‘ reveals that women outnumber men on Twitter by nearly 2:1. Whereas over on social-climbing site Linkedin, the reverse situation is true. The latter revelation may indicate that women are less interested in business networking via social media – or perhaps there’s just not as many of them in business to network.
However, right across the social networking piste women are in the social networking majority (with the obvious exception of Linkedin).
