Only 24% of Facebook users in India are female. This skewed gender ratio on the social networking site falls in line with most other trends of internet usage in the country. Experts say this only illustrates the barriers women in India face in accessing technology and information.
Just last year, Facebook touched 125 million users in India, making it the social networking giant’s second largest market globally.
Overall social media usage in the country has grown by 23% since March 2015.
