Who Rules the Social Web?

An updated version on some key social media network stats (Nov 2014). The most comprehensive (and beautiful) one I found so far. 

This could be a good info source for your next blogpost.

Some key findings (compare to 2012 stats) –

– Large, key networks Pinterest, Snapchat and Tumblr continue to draw a higher female audience.
– Most matriarchies remain matriarchies, bar Facebook (previously 58% female) now equalised to gender balance.
– Previously male-dominated sites, YouTube, Stumbleupon, DeviantArt have become more equalised.
– But only Flickr of the previous patriarchies has flipped to a more matriarchal balance.
– More tech-cultured oriented networks Reddit & Google+ have become less male dominated. Google+ now 57% men vs 64% in 2012. Reddit now 60% men vs 74% in 2012.
– And sadly, Orkut, Bebo, and Friendfeed is out of the picture.
