The data shows women lead the number count on Facebook (76% of active online U.S. adults versus 66%), Tumblr (54% versus 46%), Pinterest (33% versus 8%), Instagram (20% versus 15%) and Twitter (18% versus 17%). Not surprisingly, the only platform (within the collection of sites researched) that men are more active on than women is LinkedIn.
