Women now joining Google+ sausage fest
Earlier guestimates had suggested that the male/female population ratio on Google+ had been up to 88.7 per cent in favour of dudes. But revised stats suggest that the newest social network on the block is only 66.4 to 37.6 per cent in favour of men. Surely that has to be a good thing.
