Google+ Still Male-Dominated, Popular with Students
An infographic recently released by Website-Monitoring.com looked at Google+ users by country, occupation, gender and relationship status. The results? Google+ is still a male-dominated social network (67% of users are male), but it is also home to a significant student population.
The most popular occupations for Google+ users:
- student (20%) – 1 in 5 Google+ users are currently students
- software engineer (2.65%)
- consultant (1.99%)
- manager (1.72%)
- photographer (1.59%)
- teacher (1.39%)
Google+ is still most popular in the US, which claims 31% of the social network’s user base. India ranks 2nd, with 14% of Google+ users. However, Bangalore edged out New York to be the most popular city in terms of Google+ users (3.86% vs. 3.63%). The other non-US cities in the top ten were London (3.34% of Google+ users), Hyderabad (2.97%), Moscow (1.71%) and Calcutta (1.6%).
Now that Google+ recently opened up to teens, it will be interesting to see whether the percentage of students grows even larger on Google’s social network.
