Young Men And Women Use Facebook Differently

A new study has reported some interesting distinctions among young Facebook users, suggesting women and men often use Facebook in different ways.

“Women, when compared to men, are much more likely to use Facebook to communicate about or share content related to friends and family. Men, by contrast, are much more likely to communicate about or share content related to pop culture, the news, or current events.”

I found this interesting also:

“Of the personal information that one is able to share on their Facebook profile, our respondents are most likely to share their “relationship status,” with the majority reporting that they share this information. A large number also share information on their “favorite media,” including information about their favorite books, TV shows, movies, etc. Less than half of our respondents report that they list their “religious views” and “political views” on their Facebook profiles.”
