Study: The Gender Divide: Are Men better than Women at Social Networking?
Social networking site LinkedIn generated a "networking savviness index" and determined that, on the whole, men are more networking-savvy then women, but that varies from industry to industry. Women are especially networking-savvy in industries such as alternative dispute resolution, tobacco, alternative medicine, ranching, and international trade.
From LinkedIn's blog:
Women are more savvy networkers in the ranching industry. Men are more savvy networkers in the cosmetics industry. Wait, what? That was exactly our reaction when we saw the initial results for our latest data insights blog post on the differences in social networking behavior between men and women.
The overall result in the US is that men are overall more savvy networkers than women, but the real insights start to surface when you start slicing and dicing by industry and company.
