Rahul Roy | Sunday, July 15, 2012 | Be the first to comment! | +1

According to Infographic by Digital Flash Google+, Reddit and LinkedIn are dominated by men while facebook, twitter, Zynga and pinterest are dominated by females.

My Take
From my personal experience I can say that pinterest is very much female dominant while Google+ is much more male dominant.

Why Google+ is male dominant?
Because Google+ is better for business and is more suitable for bloggers and geeks. Needless to say Businesses are generally lead by males.

There Will be Another Android Update in 2012?

Rahul Roy | Thursday, July 05, 2012 | Be the first to comment! | +1

Ice Cream Sandwich was a major update, well at least Google thinks so.

There Will be Another Android Update in 2012?

Ice Cream Sandwich was made officially available to the public in mid-November. And 7 months later, Google made Jelly Bean official at the I/O 2012.

Project Butter, Expandable Notifications , Google Now, Gestures mode and offline dictation is enough to warrant calling Jelly Bean a major OS update.

Reportedly Google is planning to bring two Nexus device each year

This proves that Google might be planning to bring one more nexus device later this year with new version of Android?

Rahul Roy | Monday, June 11, 2012 | 1 Comment so far | +1

For Google+ brand pages is better than facebook brand pages. I've seen more traffic from Google than from facebook without promoting my blog posts on Google+.

  •  Pages can’t add people to circles until the page is added first or mentioned. 
  •  Pages can be made for a variety of different entities whereas profiles can only be made for people.
  •  Pages can have multiple administrators.
  •  The default privacy setting for elements on your page profile is public.
  •  Pages have the +1 button.
  •  Pages can’t +1 other pages, nor can they +1 stuff on the Web.
  •  Pages can’t play games.
  •  Pages don’t have the option to share to ‘Extended circles’.
  •  Pages can't share other page
