Happiness and Women on the Web Statistics

Note:  Follow-up to the post about Elle France/WIKIO Best Bloggers list.

To have been on both the Tech side and now running a women-focus blog, let me tell you that I am happier being a part of the women and moms community. Probably because I do and I write about what I am passionate about. In the past, I worked on things I was great at. My past career chose me and not the other way around.

I am thrilled that technology evolved to a point where the average (meaning non technical) woman can start a blog on the Web by herself. Blogging opens a lot of doors for women. Several of you started their small business, some got book deals and others simply enjoy being able to communicate with people that share similar interests. Notwithstanding the current economic situation, we are living in exciting time.

I am taking this opportunity to repost the key statistics of a post I first published Sept. 22, 2008 on At Home with Kim Vallee following my presentation at PodCamp Montreal.

Revealing Statistics

InsideFacebook: A survey published September 18th, 2008 shows that US women outnumber men on Facebook in every age group. Early december 2008, Oreilly’s Radar published the latest statistics.  It shows that the trend spread to all Facebook users. Females now outnumber Males on Facebook, 51% to 44%.

ComScore Media Metrix’s year-end report: Women’s community was the most visited and fastest growing Internet category, tied with politics. The number of unique visits to women’s community sites jumped 35% to almost 70 million from 52 million. This is quite an achievement considering the Presidential race.

A BlogHer survey conducted by Compass Partners : 36.2 million American female Internet users actively participate in blogs every week. You get 15.1 million women publishing at least one post a week and 21.1 million reading and commenting at least weekly.

eMarketer established that more than 8 out of 10 U.S. moms go online at least once a month.

2007 survey by Intelligence Group:

  • 88% of mothers said the Internet has helped them stay connected to the world
  • 85% believed technology has made their life as a mother easier
  • 66% said they relied more on technology since they became a parent.
