Google+ Still Male-Dominated, Popular with Students

1 in 5 Google+ Users Are StudentsAn 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.
