Men Are From Google+ And LinkedIn, Women Are From Twitter And Pinterest

Men Are From Google+ And LinkedIn, Women Are From Twitter And Pinterest | Text Analytics | Scoop.it

Historically (and statistically), social media has always skewed slightly favourably towards women, and recent studies suggest that almost three-quarters (71 percent) of internet female users are active on one or more social media sites, compared to slightly less than two-thirds (62 percent) of men. Typically, women are more likely to use Twitter (which has a 62 percent female populous), Facebook (58 percent women) and, of course, Pinterest (70 percent women), whereas men dominate Google+ (64 percent men), LinkedIn (54 percent men) and YouTube (54 percent men).

Gnip Data Stories: Brooke Fisher Liu on Using Social Media in Natural Disasters

Gnip Data Stories: Brooke Fisher Liu on Using Social Media in Natural Disasters | Text Analytics | Scoop.it

During natural disasters people tend to use social media for four interrelated reasons: checking in with family and friends, obtaining emotional support and healing, determining disaster magnitude, and providing first-hand disaster accounts. A consistent research finding is that people are less likely to follow official, government sources on social media than their friends and family during disasters.

Stuart Shulman's insight:

Social media is a global real-time sensor system and the new first draft of history.

Probably not a social movement

Probably not a social movement | Text Analytics | Scoop.it

Italians went to the polls recently producing two results many thought interesting and a bit frightening. There was the resurrection of Berlusconi for the umpteenth time even as he is being investigated for a $3+ million bribe. You cannot hold him down. The second was the emergence of Beppe Grillo as a political leader with lots of votes. Of course, the result that seemed a bit threatening is that there is no majority, and having to produce a government from no majority can seem unsettling.

Tom is right. For many folks we encounter, 10,000 - 50,000 records is #bigdata and requires a set of tools and techniques that are quite different than what is needed for 10s and 100s of millions of items.
