INFOGRAPHIC: Women love shopping; Men love porn and gossip

Research by Siteopia.com shows men spend more time than women looking at sport and porn, but they also can’t resist celebrity gossip.

The study compared the online habits of both sexes and found that men clock up over 19 hours a week online, which is over a third longer than women.

The results reveal that men spend almost as much time as women on celebrity news sites.

“The results showed men to be the biggest internet users, spending more time reading the news and show a much bigger tendency for gaming online,” said Siteopia’s spokesman.

“It’s interesting to see men now consume as much celebrity news as women, while there were also clear patterns between different forms of social media, with women the bigger Facebook users while men devote more time to Twitter on average.

“The internet is now such a big part of our lives that it’s no surprise so many of us rely on it to function day to day, but it’s important to acknowledge the high proportion of people who feel they cannot go without – with many saying 90 minutes is the longest they can be offline.”
