Nearly 42 percent of internet users in Slovakia use social networks on a daily basis. Women, however, communicate more often using these networks, according to results from a survey by the web portal heureka.sk, the SITA newswire wrote.

Approximately 23 percent of those surveyed were not familiar with the term "social networks" or had not created a profile on any network. Seventeen percent of surveyed women and 28 percent of men do not have a profile created on any social network. The remaining 35 percent of respondents visit a social network, such as Facebook, only occasionally.

"Women visit social networks more than men. Fifty-one percent of women visit social networks several times a week, or every day, while among men using the internet it is only 34 percent", stated Marek Brumlich, project manager of heureka.sk, to SITA.

"One of the forms of social networking are independent internet websites to compare products on which customers of internet stores share experience with on-line shopping to evaluate individual products and e-shops with the objective to help other users in shopping," noted Brumlich. Forty-one percent of the polled e-shopping customers almost always share their experience on product-comparing portals. However, 31 percent said they share their opinion on products only in the event of an exceptionally good or bad experience.
