I was recently reading an article on my work’s Intranet by our CIO that had a reference to this article by Mashable Tech.
Mashable Tech are “the largest independent online news site dedicated to covering digital culture, social media and technology. With more than 20 million unique monthly visitors, Mashable has one of the most engaged online news communities. Founded in 2005, Mashable is headquartered in New York City with an office in San Francisco.”
Mashable used Facebook profiling (reason enough to secure your sh*t people!) from 145,000 people to draw a picture (literally) of the “typical Android user”. I can’t see how this can be 100% accurate because there isn’t even a percentage of a female user. I am a female Android user! Time for them to expand their demographic…
Anyway, it’s still pretty interesting, if only partially accurate. With over 4 million Android apps and over 700,000 Android devices activated every day (according to Andy Rubin VP of Google Mobile), I’d think a good proportion of them would be female and/or people with blonde hair!
