The Average Female Twitter User Has 163 Followers [STATS]

As a female social networker, how many followers do you have on your Twitter profile?

Women in the U.S. have, on average, 163 Twitter followers, reveals new research from SheKnows and Harris Interactive, which surveyed US female social network users back in August.

Twitter finished second overall behind Facebook, where female users boast an average of 250 friends, but ahead of blogs (149 friends), LinkedIn (89 contacts) and Instagram (89 followers).

“Women are really using social networks to help build their identities,” said Samantha Skey, chief revenue officer at SheKnows. “They’re looking for feedback and validation—concepts that extend from the personal to the commercial, as women post not only photos and status updates about their kids, but also questions and suggestions about products and services.”
