Given figures made us understand two things:-

A. Female are more prone to look at the sites of social networking for amusement and latest happenings in friends circle. Evident from the Website niche like Pinterest, class-mates and it is obvious since they are more sensitive towards the relation.

B. Whereas the Male counterparts maintain a bit of balance in terms of usage of social networking for amusement. As is evident from the websites they mostly visit like reddit, friendfeed.
