Le Chasseur Français

This year, women's magazines are just as represented in the top 100 of the magazine press in France, as those of the Society category, unlike 2018 where we found the Society category at the top.

However, it is the Society category that remains the most sold with nearly 12 million copies sold against 7.3 million for the female category.

The press remains a particularly widely read media in France; in fact, nearly 97.6% of the French read a title in 2017, whether it is a print or digital edition, which represents nearly 51.2 million readers!

It should also be noted that on average, the French reading basket is made up of 5 to 6 different titles, and that this reading basket is composed by 77% of magazine titles and 23% of daily titles!

 

It is also a media that has been able to adapt to new devices since nowadays almost all titles are available via the Internet on different channels: computer, tablet, smartphone.

And the arrival of the Internet and digital technology has really changed consumption patterns. Today (in 2017) 77% of the French read at least one press brand in digital version (all channels combined). Since 2017 it is, by the bye, the preferred consumption pattern by the French; since 53% of readings are made on digital; the mobile being the preferred channel. A notable progression for digital, which, in 4 years, has grown by 12%.

In 2020, the press remains a particularly read media. It's, in particular, a media that adapts to digitalization since nowadays almost all titles are available via Internet on different devices: computer, tablet, smartphone.

Besides French people are more and more fond of the digital press, but it is also by far, the internet source in which they have the most confidence (see diagram below).

Even if the sources of digital information are more and more numerous, the websites of the major newspapers are at the top of the ranking since 70% of French people declare to have full confidence in this source against only 50% for information coming from Google.

 

The picture below shows the confidence of French people in various internet sources in 2017.

68%: major French newspaper websites

50%: Google news

46%: pure player newspapers websites

38%: YouTube

34%: Facebook

30%: Twitter

Although it is one of the oldest media, the press remains a very strategic media, and for several years, now has offered many alternatives to advertisers.
