Are men spending the bacon on social games before it even reaches their partner to burn? (Or are men spending the dough before their breadwinner can even get to it?) Either way, something's up. This somewhat surprising finding comes from a study by MocoSpace, a social network for gamers based in Boston, Mass, conducted on their own platform.

So, keep in mind that the numbers behind these demographics are taken from a specific community and don't necessarily speak for social gamers across all platforms. MocoSpace, who studied 1,500 social gamers on their platform, found that men, 53 percent of their player base compared to 47 percent women, outspend women 9 to 1 on social games. But wait, aren't women the majority on social games?
