Social Media Gender Participation in @OUCisco

Fig1 - Gender Participation on +OUCisco Facebook Page

This is a call for expert opinion - regarding gender participation both in Network Engineering and Social Media.

The above diagram - gleaned from our @OUCisco Facebook Page shows gender and age distribution for the current community. The age distribution is unsurprising and describes the typical Open University Student community. However, the gender participation - notably female is actually lower on our module and within the wider Cisco Academy. This is a domain that has always had unsatisfactory participation.

So my request for some gender participation expertise:

  • Does the above figure make sense - are we lower, higher or normative for network engineering?
  • What is the typical female participation within social media for science/technology topics?
