Gli uomini stanno superando le donne nel News Foto!

Men are as many as 2/3 of the faces we see in the photos that accompany news stories; even in mixed company, their faces show up as much as 10% larger.

Who’s in the news? According to a recent study by the Pew Research Center, we’re seeing far more men in the spotlight on news stories than women. In their analysis of news stories shared on Facebook between April 1 and June 30, 2018, “men comprised more than half of the faces in photos accompanying links from news outlets, with as many as 2/3 of the faces pictured.”

Why does it matter on Facebook? Pew elected to analyze photos as they appear on that platform’s news feed because “the site standardizes the presentation of news image and text across outlets” in a way that Twitter and LinkedIn don’t always consistently do.
