The Telecentre Women Facebook page alerted me to this: young women are the most eager adopters of web 2.0 & social media in Africa. It was originally shared via web2fordev. Read about it here :http://ow.ly/gWIez
This is not at all surprising to me - I find women in developing countries to be the most enthusiastic about using cell phones and social media, to access information and interactions that the offline world denies them (because of economics, culture/tradition, unstable environments, etc.).
