No surprise: Blogs, Twitter and Facebook are increasingly popular with moms, as they share experiences and information on all kinds of subjects.

According to a recent Retail Advertising and Marketing Association (RAMA) survey conducted by BIGresearch, women with children at home are more likely to use Facebook (60.3%), MySpace (42.4%) and Twitter (16.5%) than average adults (50.2%, 34.4%, 15.0%, respectively). And 15.3% maintain their own blog.

Research from SheConnected Multimediafound that one-third (36%) of online U.S. and Canadian women would give up chocolate, their Pradas, or their mother-in-law before they gave up their social networks (OK, that last’s one’s a given…). But interestingly, only half would be willing to pay subscription fees to continue using social media channels.
