Google+ Most Popular With Male Users, Students [INFOGRAPHIC]

The stereotypical Google+ user is a male engineer, but that’s only half right. According to new research, Google+ is still definitely male-skewing, but students outnumber software engineers by a wide margin.

That’s one of the most compelling bits of data compiled by Website-Monitoring. A little more than a half year after launch, Website-Monitoring took a look at the demographics behind Google+. One surprise is the number of students on the network — 20%. That compares to the next most-popular profession on the list, software engineers (2.65%). Consultants and managers are also popular on the network. Men also make up 67% of G+’s audience. That’s an improvement over July, when males made up 86.8% or 73.7% of G+, depending on the source.

Meanwhile, the site seems to be popular in India. Bangalore, Hyperabad and Calcutta made the list of the top 10 G+ cities and Bangalore was number one, edging out New York. The U.S., however, still has the largest share of G+ users — 31.49% vs. 13.69% for India.

Unfortunately, the research doesn’t outline the average age of Plussers, though a glance at some bands that are popular on the network — Coldplay, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam — conjures up someone in the Gen X range. That, however, may change since Google opened the network to teens last month.

keep up with the newest technologies and contemplate about how these will be used in the future. On this blog I'll share my thoughts about the future of technology, based on the high Tech Road Show Blog inventions of today.
