Women far ahead of men when it comes to social networks


When it comes to social media, the women have it. A recent survey shows women out-number men on Twitter and Facebook. However, there are some places on the Web men can claim their own.

A good place to start is The Art of Manliness, a Web site devoted to real men. Launched by an Oklahoma man and his wife, The Art of Manliness, they say, is a blog dedicated to uncovering the lost art of being a man.

Recent articles or posts cover 31 life skills a man should master before heading out on his own. Some of the most popular articles are "How to Shave like your Grandpa", "9 Ways to Start a Fire without Matches," "How to Carve a Turkey" and "How to Smell like a Barbershop."

The site suggests using Lucky Tiger hair tonic and Bay Rum after shave.

The Art of Manliness is a great site with hundreds of helpful and interesting articles about money and career, relationship and family, health and sports and dress and grooming.

While women apparently have claimed Pinterest as their own, the men have Gentlemint.

It's very similar to Pinterest in that users can post articles that men might find interesting. Launched late last year, Gentlemint is still in beta testing, but non-members can still check out the articles.

A company that makes great axes, a pair of manly boots, World War I ammunition discovery, Remington shotguns, cheese and lots and lots of beer.

Why are these things interesting? Ask a woman why they like Pinterest. Gentlemint is by men, for men and about men.

Still, guys don't be afraid to pull a nice chili recipe off Pinterest every now and then.
Women make up 82% of all Pinterest users and altogether, women rack up 99 million more visits to social media sites than their male counterparts.
