 - Proportion of Hong Kong women using Web-mail and E-cards skyrocket by 104.7% and 79.1% growth, respectively (between Oct 2001 and Dec 2001)

 - Korea dominates the Chat/IRC scene but Singapore sees astronomical rise of 440% proportional growth
 - SAR women flock to Forums/Message Boards at 21.7 %, Korean women follow suit at 15.4%

  Was it the winter holidays that made Asian women feel like reaching out to touch others? Latest figures from industry standard of global Internet intelligence, NetValue, indicate that this was a likely scenario.

  Results from NetValue’s newest product, the e-Lifestyle Report, revealed that in nearly all Asian markets, females have increasingly made use of different facets of the Internet as their communication tools.

  “Towards the end of 2001, women were definitely interested in keeping in touch with people over the Internet,” says Dr. Jack Loo, president of NetValue Limited.

  “The winter of 2001 was different from past winters. There was a lot more need for individuals to get in touch with the rest of society. The Internet became a global coffeehouse, more than ever, as a means of people talking to friends, family, and even strangers about what was happening around them and how they were coping with that.

   So for this segment of the online audience, we saw more female users sending e-cards, sending and receiving emails, joining chatrooms, and posting up messages in forums.”
