About one-third of Google+ users are female, dispelling the notion that the new system is dominated by men.

Paul Allen, the head of Ancestry.com who accurately predicted last week that the number of Google+ users would soon reach and surpass 10-million, reported that 33.6 percent of users were female, as of July 14 (up from 23 percent on July 4).

Other estimates suggested that male-female disparity was much greater. (SocialStatistics said 87 percent of users were male, while FindPeopleonPlus estimates the figure at 75 percent).

“For comparison sake, LinkedIn, which is a business social network with more than 100 million users is still 63% Male and 37% Female according to Pew,” Allen said, according to Itproportal.com

“Google+'s female population percentage will likely surpass LinkedIn's in early August. The poster of 18 men in a hot tub that has been passed around for the past week or two is not reflective of reality and is not what Google+ is going to end up being.”
