Anna Knabe's curator insight, March 15, 2014 7:52 PM

PCWorld reports on statistics about race, gender, and age of people using social media. They say that social media users who are white tend to flock to Pinterest, Twitter is popular among blacks and people who live in cities, more people on Facebook are women than men and Instagram attracts adults under 30, a newly released survey finds. Some other interesting findings of theirs were that 67% of Internet users are on Facebook, far above other social media sites. Less surprisingly, women are five times more likely to use Pinterest than men.


These findings emphasize how many factors play a role in online behavior. While gender affects the sites we go on and how we use them, so does race, age, socioeconomic status, and the like. The psychology of online behavior is subject to a variety of factors and reporting on one feature can only show a part of the picture.
