Tampa, Florida, April 19, 2012 – TeamViewer®, one of the world’s most popular providers of remote control and online meetings software, today announced the findings of its survey of over 2,500 American adults age 18 and older, conducted online by Harris Interactive in January.

When asked about the characteristics most important for an online meeting host to have, women proved much more demanding than men in almost every category, including:
