Men and women use the web differently

A new survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project found men and women use the web differently. Men look for things to do on the Internet, while women look for people they can chat to, the report found.
But there was a degree of gender parity online in that 68 percent of men surf the Web as compared to 66 percent women.

And since the population of females is slightly higher than males, Pew estimates that more and more women are now comfortable with the Internet. Around 60 percent of black women are online as compared to 50 percent black men. Men like to try out the latest technologies, while women are more cautious and worried about viruses and the like.
