  1. 0-0 it’s funny that all the men platform lots of them are chinese sites…I was so surprised when I try to read it..
    kaixin001, qq,renren,douban….
    what happen to the chinese females then?
    funny statistics…

  2. I don’t believe we reached a saturation point…
    there is tendencies for people to continue going on these platforms to talk, but the differences is that old programs usage decline, new programs (even if it’s the same thing as the old program) got adopted…

    1. Maybe we should talk about saturation in terms of continous creation and massive use of new Social Networks as a “trend” and not as a response to a real need of news channels of communication. Thanks for your comment!

  3. I also found it interesting how the top two sites with the highest percentage of men ran parallel to the top two sites portraying the most educated (graduate degree). This really demonstrates an issue that has been around for a while regarding women and their ability to gain access to any form of educational system.

  4. What is interesting, perhaps even a little baffling, about this infographic is that Facebook only appeared in one list. Thus we can conclude that Facebook was definitely considered when the data was collected. But how can such an ubiquitous platform be accounted for only once? That really does speak to the validity of this analysis.

    1. @Tom & @Yoomin
      Perhaps we should take into account that most of the data of this infographic aims to diferences in gender/age “Highest percentage of women” “Youngest users” etc.
      Facebook, as the most global social network, maybe doesn’t have significant extreme differences in terms of gender or age. Moreover, Facebook again, as the most global and stable social network, cannot be tagged as a social network “in the rise” or “in decline” due to its quota of 500+ millions users.
      Thanks to both of you for your comments!

  5. I wonder why Facebook isn’t on the lists? With that aside, it’s interesting how social networks can succeed and fail given their similarity and related purpose/s. I guess it really depends on how the public perceives the website, the brand’s value, the slight differentiating factor, target audience and integration into people’s lives.
