Why Do Women Rule Social Media? – Infographic

No change in social media dominance. Women rule! The infographic below gives some staggering numbers. Have a look.

Why do women rule social media? By now, it is no secret that social media is mandatory if you are in business of any kind. Even if it is just the business of promoting yourself for a job search, it is not a good idea to neglect social media. Some numbers leave men so far behind, one could get the impression women have huge advantages when it comes to creativity and some other areas.

One thing I have observed and experienced over the past years in social media, and this could be very well a reason why men fall behind, women support each other much better than men do. Men, maybe by nature, are much more competitive with each other. In other words, men that do well with and on social media get much less support from their gender than a woman that does well. Maybe this leads to some frustration and is leading men to stay away from social media. This is for sure not true with all men, but I have seen some tendencies in this direction.

What do you think? Why do women dominate social media?  Your opinion is appreciated in the comments

For the most part, people sit in between knowing not much about the virtual currency. Over the past five years, it has gone from being an experiment to a market capitalization of billions of dollars.

This infographic shows the history of Bitcoin, from the beginning in the midst of the financial crisis to the first ATM, acceptance by Virgin Galactic to accept Bitcoins for space travel and The People’s Bank of China not allowing Chinese banks to handle Bitcoins.

Representations of Gender in Advertising – The Two Sides Of Advertising

The advertising industry is working with all tricks to make us believe what they want us to believe. For the most part they are very successful with it. Sales are good and that is what counts for most of us. However, there is another side to it and that one is not so great. Once in a while we should remind ourselves that the advertising world is not reality and what you see on TV will not reflect in your mirror, no matter how hard you diet or how hard you are trying to display the “big shot”. Hunger yourself to death or getting depressed while trying to be cool should not be an objective to strive for. This video is a combination of funny, sad and a reminder of the unreal world we are confronted with when we watch advertising. –TheMainStreetAnalyst–
