Online News is a Man's World
According to a story in Wired, both the New York Times and the Washington Post claim that more than 60% of their registered users are male. No one seems to know why, but some leading theories are that:
- Women are still trying to catch up to men in terms of sheer numbers online, and/or
- Women aren't interested in online news
But if it really is true that men outnumber women on news sites by nearly 2-1, these sites have some work to do in learning what interests women... or what keeps them away.
