We just had to borrow the title of that article from [URL="http://techland.time.com/2012/02/15/men-are-from-google-women-are-from-pinterest/"]Techland[/URL], illustrating how gender biased the two social networking sites really are. The article features some really interesting stats on men vs. women using each social network and an especially strange trend in the UK, where Pinterest users are predominantly male.

"A quick perusal of [Pinterest] finds plenty of photos exemplifying beautiful design and fashion, which — though not solely the domain of women — certainly attracts its fair share of them. [URL="http://visual.ly/pinterest-usa-vs-uk"]Visual.ly estimates[/URL] that 83% of Pinterest’s users are female."

"All in all, two-thirds of the people using Google+ are men, [URL="http://www.networkworld.com/news/2012/021412-google-plus-men-256127.html"]according to data[/URL] compiled by Website-Monitoring.com. The company believes the fact that Google+ is closely integrated with other Google products popular with young men, namely Android and Gmail, make it appealing to dudes."
