1,000,000 post sample says: Women click LIKE more, while guys POST

3 Comments facebook analytics

We grabbed 1,000,000 random posts from Facebook and tracked all interactions at a user level. We used the graph API, which is open to anyone. [Side note: if you'd like to learn how to pull this data, ping me.]

Highlights:

  • Women tend to “like” more than “comment” on a post. Worldwide, 51% of post likes were from females, though this was 55% in the US.
  • Women “Like”  comments.  In the US, 59% of likes on comments were female
  • Males post on pages more frequently than females– at 51% vs 48%.  The difference is gender unknown.
