Pew Internet Project studies gender divisions in Internet use

By Derek Sooman on
A study by the Pew Internet Project has found that men and women use the Internet differently, but that about the same percentage of men and women in the US are serious internet users. It is no longer the case that men outnumber women on the Net - that trend is perhaps even reversing.

By contrast women like the opportunities the net gives them to make and maintain human connections.
