Data point: The current state of social networks
This excerpt from a larger infographic on “the current state of social networks,” from social media strategy firm Ignite Social Media, examines which sites attract which demographics. As seen here, the youngest users are drawn most to Habbo.com (“the world’s largest virtual hotel”), “3D chat and dress-up community” imvu.com, Bebo.com and even Friendster—who knew? The oldest of social networkers can be found on “your address book for life” Plaxo.com, Newsvine.com and Reunion.com.
The networks with the highest percentage of women include German social network wer-kennt-wen.de, Imvu and Bebo; the highest concentration of men can be found on “China’s Apple of social networks,” kaixin001.com; douban.com, a Chinese site devoted to movies, books and music reviews; and Reunion-like odnoklassniki.ru in Russia, for old classmates and friends.
