Daily newspaper consumption in France
According to the Statista Global Consumer Survey from 2022, about a quarter of the respondents declared having read the free daily newspaper 20 Minutes in the past two weeks, while paid newspapers as Le Figaro and Le Monde were mentioned by 17 and 23 percent of French respectively. In the same survey, French also stated purchasing daily newspapers as single issues rather than as part of a subscription. Moreover, regarding the amount of printed copies of the daily press, it seems that the printed press slightly declined since around the second decade of the century.
Online news consumption in France
In a context of decline of the printed press and spreading internet use, news media appear to diversify their reach also online: among the online newspapers in France, the most visited news websites on which French spent money were lemonde.fr, leparisien.fr and lefigaro.fr as of 2022. In addition to this, smartphone was the most used device to read news online thanks to the offered mobility and adaptability. However, these new consumption habits have their own ups and downs as many consumers reported having already spotted or been fooled by fake news.
