Figures released by online researcher, Hitwise, state that almost 70 percent of Australia’s Facebook users are women.

The statistics are in line with other recent surveying showing that women make up almost two-thirds of social network users worldwide.

Notable exception globally was the business-oriented network, LinkedIn, which had a majority of male users.

The Facebook statistics show the network is most popular in Australia among those aged between 18 and 24,  followed by users aged between 14 and 17 and those 25 to 34. 

According to the figures, micro blogging service Twitter is also growing fast in Australia. Twitter traffic rose by more than 500 percent between August 2007 and January 2009.
