Google+ attracted a lot more men than women out of the gate—everybody seems to agree about that. The question is, how much of a boy's club is the new social networking service, and is it going to stay more blue than pink?
What's more, "Google+ is quickly turning pink," he writes. Allen has apparently been conducting his gender breakdowns for a couple of weeks now and published findings that show that the initial male-heavy user base for Google+, which was launched June 28, is rapidly trending towards more equitable gender distribution.
Thus on July 4, Google+ was 77 percent male and 23 percent female, on July 7 it was 68.4 percent male and 31.6 percent female, and as noted, on July 14, it was on the cusp of a 2-to-1 male-to-female ration (sic).
Me? I'd like to see stats on the percentage of lamers to serious people across the various social media, like Failbook: 80/20, YouTube: 60/40, Twitter: 50/50, yadda, yadda. That would be fun and might could confirm some of my dearly held assumptions. Or not, as the case might be.
Speakin' of G+... I did it:
"It" meaning I blocked someone. It wasn't because of the heft of the comment stream on some people's posts... I can live with muting those. Nope, it was because I started seein' fuckin' Obama suck-up psy-op posts from the blockee. I get enough of that shit in the media, I don't need... or want... to see it in my G+ stream. Thus are the stupid punished.
And then there's the absence of the usual... it's been 23 whole days since I last bitched about the ever-present wind here on The High Plains o' New Mexico. I know because I looked, and this has to be some sort of "personal best" in this space. I'm lovin' it, too.
