Surprise, surprise: According to data from Performics, it looks like men are actually more active social media users than women. Performics asked 1,000 respondents (52 percent of whom were female and 48 percent male) what social networks they have an account with, more specifically, what social networks do they visit at least once a month. Across the board, more men responed that they were active on YouTube, Twitter, Google Plus, MySpace and LinkedIn. Facebook, however, was the exception, where women beat out men by 1 percent. While gender stereotypes may lead you to believe that women would be the social network butterflies, it is really men who are the more active social networkers.
