Interesting point, Jay. I’m the queen bee of social networking in our family of two! 🙂 Hubby is a firm non-believer. I can’t get him to create a Facebook profile. LOL.

Though gender does influence some of our choices, I believe personality style and motivational sensitivities are more informative for predicting behaviors. e.g some of us have a higher preference for social contact, curiosity, expression, belonging etc. than others.

I do think listening is critical for marketers/businesses in the Web 2.0 world. And, I’ve also heard, regards socnets, when the marketers move in the members move out. So, it really is a whole new approach… as the video you have here outlines so well!

Your experience with your wife here sounds very much like mine with my wife, Alli. She is an insightful, relationship-focused person who relies on her ability to do so in order to do her job as an HR manager with a large Federal government department here in Australia.
We have long and sometimes heated conversations as we approach what are often the same issues from two different directions. I am always heavily influenced by her practical, human-centric view of relationships and conversations, she takes away from me some of the more technical and implementation-focused ideas.
It’s a fruitful and valuable exchange every time.
