In a study of 112k publicly available Facebook profile pictures from nine world regions, wome appear more frequently with a single other person, while men appear more frequently in larger groups, in line with the social hypotheses about gender differences in adult social style.

Studied world regions: Europe, Central and South Asia, Latin America, Middle East and North Africa, North America, South East Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Australia, East Asia, and undefined regions.


Figure: ratio of the number of females to number of males in same-gender ‘group’ pictures as a function of the total number of people. Two-people picture feature more woman-woman than man-man pairs (nF/nM > 1), the ratio of men and women in 3-4 people groups is the same (nF/nM = 1), and larger groups are more frequently masculine than feminine (nF/nM < 1)
