Twitter, Facebook, Gaming And The Workplace – How Women Rule Tech [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that 55 percent of Twitter and Facebook users are women?

This trend doesn’t stop there. Some 60 percent of Zynga social gamers are female – the average social gamer is a 43-year old woman – and women hold 56 percent of all professional jobs in the U.S.

While great strides have been made in workplace equality and social norms – 18-20 percent of engineering students are female, and overall women hold more bachelors and graduate degrees than men – there’s still a lot of catching up to do. Just 25 percent of all IT jobs are held by women, and a hefty 89 percent of the executives at Fortune 500 companies are men. This is a ratio that must and should change – Fortune 500 companies with at least three female directors saw a 53 percent increase on equity and a 42 percent leap in sales.

This infographic takes a closer look at women who tech.
