Pipl's 5 facts about social networking sites…

January 7, 2008

Pipl is a ‘deep web’ people search engine. Their 5 facts about social networking sites based on data collected in November & December 2007 is interesting.

  • The women are younger, the men are older
  • Bebo and Xanga have the youngest crowd
  • MySpace is still the largest, by far
  • European, Asians and South American members are getting younger
  • More women on MySpace, more men on Hi5
  • You are able to filter their data by location, gender, site, etc. Their methodology is posted here and they do have some notations about their Facebook data – namely, they don’t have it. I hadn’t even heard of Hi5.

    If the age distribution charts don’t rock your world, then maybe this little slice of humor I received from my colleague Richard Nantel will.

      Fun post. I had never heard of Pipl. I tried it on myself and learned that…

      “Richard Nantel may appear as: Dick Nantel, Dickon Nantel, Rich Nantel, Rick Nantel, Ricky Nantel”

      My uncle Ray called me Rich when I was a kid. I don’t know how Pipl knew that. Scary.
