AskPatty.comWomen are responsible for 85 percent of all brand purchases. A new study reveals that Internet use far surpasses TV and print. And women outnumber men in social networking. Your market is women and they are on the Internet.


An IDC study released today, shows that people who have an Internet connection spend almost twice as much time surfing the Web than watching TV, and more than eight times as much reading newspapers or magazines.

In a week people spend:
32.7 hours surfing the Web
16.4 hours watching TV
3.9 hours reading newspapers and magazines

Further, a Rapleaf study of 13.2 million people and how they are using social media revealed that while the trends indicate both sexes are using social media in huge numbers, women far outpace the men.

The number of US women over age 55 using Facebook grew by 175.3% since September 2008, making mature females one of the fastest growing demographic groups on the social network, according to usage statistics released by independent blog Inside Facebook.
