Report: More Than Two-Thirds Of Google+ Users Are Male

In a study complied by, a few key trends about Google+ user demographics were revealed.  The most eye-opening stat?  67% of all users were male.  This of course is the exact opposite of most social media networking sites.  Women hold the slight majority of users on Twitter, a 55% majority on Facebook, and a whopping 97% share on Pinterest.

With 99% of users reporting their gender (1% reporting as other) and an astounding sample size of over 43 million users, these Google+ statistics are quite astounding:


We expect to see these stats level out as Google is now forcing a Google+ profile on anyone who signs up for a Google Product (YouTube, Google Docs, Google Apps.)

Other additional interesting data includes:

  • ‘Student’ is the top occupation at 20.01%
  • Bangalore is the top city at 3.86%
  • ‘Single’ is the most popular relationship status at 42.06%
