Gender in Social Media, the New Divide?

Discussion FridaysI’m going to try something new today I’m going to call Discussion Fridays. Rather than a lengthy tutorial or other similar post I’m going to instead post questions for discussion in the comments section. The idea being to incorporate more interaction and the ideas of more folks than just myself.

So here goes the Bit51 Discussion Friday topic 1:

Is this the beginning of a new paradigm or just a fluke?
