Deerrrr Reeeeeally....??????????

Children are starving to death and someone spent money to figure out that men buy virtual goods.

I'd hardly call this conclusive.

While 1,500 sounds like a lot, it's such a small sample size in regards to the actual "mobile social gaming" population I wouldn't give it much weight.

So they found that, out of 1500 gamers, just under 550 males and 220 females buy virtual goods. Notice how they didn't specifically mention that 1500 is less than a hundredth (0.01) of a percent of their members (17 million) and that roughly HALF of their sample size isn't even making purchases?

In all honesty, they should have just surveyed a large batch of virtual buyers from the get-go and counted the males/females from the sample size. The only semi-valuable data here is that about 50% of mobile social network gamers (regardless of gender) buy virtual goods.

Of course men ultimately spend more money. Who do you think the bill comes when the woman spends the money?? Duh.

So?

We all know that anything spent by Men on mobile social games is totally eclipsed by the amount that Women spend on Facebook games like CityVille.

CityVille = $100 million a month revenue.
