This stat seems to explain why most people here don't understand why "tons of randos adding you" and "anyone can jump into your conversation by default" is a problem.
This is the problem with G+. It needs to stop being such a sausage fest

- I think they had no choice who they want to test-drive google+. Most of the normal web users don't even know what google+ is. And you needed to actively try to get an invite, you couldn't just join. Moreover, only the tech nerds (which are mostly male) read all the tech news and knew from day one when google+ opened, whereas the normal web surfer had no clue until the first news paper articles popped up. Yesterday I could use the invite button for the first time and invited some friends myself.Jul 9, 2011
- I don't see random people following me and jumping into my conversations as a problem. But then again, I am a big friendfeed user. You know friendfeed, that quirky fantastic social network where everyone loves to sip from the big public firehose?
And I never considered the male/female ratio here, and that's probably a good thing, as if I begin to notice it, it usually means there is a certain unusually high concentration of moronic cheerleaders that can't spell, at which point that is an indicator to me that I am using the wrong network.Jul 11, 2011
- so what does this say about people? is there an evolutionary reason men are flocking to explore and the women are staying where it's safe?Jul 11, 2011
