Infographic: How Men And Women Use Social Media And Mobile

Did you know that women are more likely to use social media for relationships, entertainment and self-help, while men are more inclined to use social sites for business and dating?

Additionally, when it comes to brand interaction, men prefer swift access to deals and information. Women, on the other hand, ignore social media ads more often, and are less likely to take action on paid digital advertising.

This infographic from FinancesOnline.com aims to highlight some of these key differences in how the two genders interact with social media and mobile.

And it provides some valuable data points from sources like Nielsen and Pew.
