Gender and internet dating

Finally, the histories of some SNSs themselves have ties with gender.

For example, gay men were one of the earliest groups to join and use the early SNS Friendster.

Female participants in a multi-stage study conducted in 2007 to discover the motivations of Facebook users scored higher on scales for social connection and posting of photographs.

Studies have also been conducted on the differences between females and males with regards to blogging.

Researchers who have examined the gender of users of multiple SNSs have found contradictory results.

Hargittai's groundbreaking 2007 study examining race, gender, and other differences between undergraduate college student users of SNSs found that women were not only more likely to have used SNSes than men but that they were also more likely to have used many different services, including Facebook, My Space, and Friendster; these differences persisted in several models and analyses.

The Pew Research Center found that younger females are more likely blog than males their own age, even males that are older than them.

Similarly, in a study of blogs maintained in My Space, women were found to be more likely to not only write blogs but also write about family, romantic relationships, friendships, and health in those blogs.Privacy has been the primary topic of many studies of SNS users, and many of these studies have found differences between male and female SNS users, although some studies have found results contradictory to those found in other studies.Some researchers have found that women are more protective of their personal information and more likely to have private profiles.Other researchers have found that women are less likely to post some types of information.Acquisti and Gross found that women in their sample were less likely to reveal their sexual orientation, personal address, or cell phone number.These fears have the potential to – at least temporarily – overwhelm the positive and empowering uses of these technologies.
