  • So I am confused regarding the way you break down your metrics: what is the point in comparing one group of countries (UK) to the entire Europe? Who is included in those percentages?Which European countries?. I do not think there is much value in this comparison as this is an uneven one.

  21. Our research supports other interesting findings...
  22. According to Forrester... “Forrester’s Social Technographics® data reveals that women have different online social behaviour than men. They like to participate in communities, share information, and engage in conversation. “In contrast, communication among men online is more linear or competitive. “Men are more likely than women to be Collectors, Creators, and Critics; they watch videos, create content, and are more dominant in posting opinions in online forums. For example, only 15% of Wikipedia content is female-generated.”Source: Engage Women With Personal And Relevant Social Interactions by TracyStokes, Forrester, July 2011
  23. The Wall Street Journal studied a week ofFoursquare checkins...• Among 100 categories, women were most likely to check into cosmetic shops and doctor’s offices, educational venues and shops• Gay bars and tech start-ups had the highest proportion of men; they also dominated travel and airports• “Foursquare isn’t just about Source: all checkins on Foursquare between where you go, it’s about where Jan 21 and Jan 28 2011; data provided by Foursquare you tell people you’re going.” “A week in Foursquare” by Albert Sun, Jennifer Valentino-DeVries and Zach Seward, published in the WSJ May 19 2011
  24. Men use social channels less for friends, familyand colleagues... 68% of women and 54% of men use social media to stay in touch with their friends. 60% of women and 42% of men use social media to stay in touch with their family. 34% of women and 22% of men use social media to stay in touch with their coworkers.Source: Rebtel survey of 2,361 US adults, May 2011
  25. Women connect more and for longer Worldwide, women spend “Sheryl Sandberg, COO of longer on social networking Facebook, has talked about sites – 16% of their time how women are not only the online, compared with 11% for majority of its users, but drive Men 1 62% of activity in terms of messages, updates and comments, and 71% of the daily fan activity. “Women have 8% more Facebook friends on average than men, and spend more time on the site.” 21: Women on the Web, Comscore June 2010;2: Aileen Lee, Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers quoted in TechCrunch, March 2011
  26. What does this mean for brands? “Women have the potential to drive a brand’s reputation online because, compared with men, they are more connected with each other and like to talk about brands and products, especially in social media. “But marketers, particularly in more male-oriented categories like finance, are not making a digital connection with women. (Women can tell the difference; 71% of women in the UK think that marketers don’t know how to talk to them, unless it is about beauty or cleaning products.) “To achieve the next level of digital success, marketers must understand their female consumers’ life stage and then use social media to engage with them around passion points that mesh with the brand offering.”Source: Engage Women With Personal And Relevant Social Interactions by Tracy Stokes, Forrester,July 2011
