If you’ll remember, the numbers as reported last week were less than balanced. Early estimates, as seen here and elsewhere, pegged Google’s new social networking service with a nearly 90-10 split of guys to girls. Not exactly healthy!
But not so fast. Firstly, many Giz readers stood up and said I use Google+, and I have girl parts. Secondly, fresh research from Ancestry.com that utilized a “surname-based random sampling” method revealed that Google+ is only about 66.4% male. The network is quickly equalizing: Three days before the 66.4% number was spit out, the network was 77% male.
There’s still a long way to go before this network proves it’s worth anyone’s time, but these numbers are promising, especially for you members of the fairer sex who might have been a bit apprehensive about jumping into the pool. [All Things D]
