London, Oct 4:
Is your choice for smartphone platform a give away on your sexual preferences? Yes, claims a new study.
The Android versus iOS divide is not just confined to technology alone but also seeps into personal choices, the study by Pornhub – one of the biggest adult web sites in world – suggests.
Pornhub conducted the study of its mobile users to find out what they looked at online. It found that users of the two operating systems have clear differences in what they were looking for, Dailymail.com reported.
The study found that iOS users tend to spend 8 minutes and 40 seconds on site when they visit it and tend to leave after just 9.8 page views. They view videos in the Bondage and Fetish categories 105 percent and 66 percent more than Android users, who appear to prefer ebony and cartoon-themed content significantly more.
Android users spend an average 10 minutes per visit and peak out at 10.9 page views.
Apple users were also more vague about what they wanted to watch, with 1-2 keywords being used per search, whereas Android users get more specific, often using 3-4 descriptors to find the content that they want.
Within the high proportion of traffic that comes to Pornhub from mobile devices, 48 percent of the shares come from Android-based devices, accounting for the majority, with iOS-based devices coming in at a close second with 46 percent of shares.
The United States, Britain, Canada and Australia are bigger iOS users, whereas countries like Brazil, Argentina and India all have many more Android users. (IANS)
