How does this influence how we market to both these genders? How do men and women use social media differently?

Men are more likely to use social media for business or dating, whereas women are more likely to use social media for staying in touch with family and friends, sharing of stories and photos, entertainment and self-help.

This information is not only gold for our online marketing efforts, but we can also translate these findings into our offline marketing activities and making them more relevant and more effective.
