Gender Balance on Social Networking Sites

Oh boy, what does it say about me that I am a member of reddit, Digg,, and G+, but not Pinterest? I don't know if you can actually say that "chicks rule" just because there are more of them on social networking sites. I don't even know if there actually ARE more females on social networking sites, since Livejournal, Tumblr, myYearbook, Catster, and other sites are not represented at all, and since what is defined as a "social networking site" varies depending on who is defining. But here's the data for these sites! If you need a larger version to read, see the full size chart at Information is Beautiful. Link -via Geeks Are Sexy

How do they know if a user is male or female on a site like reddit? Is this based on that Google Ad thing that guesses age and gender based on your history, because I thought that was not very accurate.
