French Social Media

Social media is an important part of any business's marketing campaign. But what happens when you want to target customers who speak a different language, like French? Can you still use social media?

Yes, you can with the right help.

The Internet is a great place to grow a business because you can reach customers all over the world. At ExtraDigital we have found social media to be highly effective at growing brand awareness and sales in any language. The secret is to have a good understanding of the needs of each market as well as the challenges of communicating in a different language like French.

Social Media in France

Social Media and French Users

French is spoken on all five continents and is ranked as the ninth most widely spoken language on the internet (97.2 million users). It is also Europe’s second most widely spoken mother language after German.

French social media use is still on the increase and while the key growth in France has been a more youthful audience aged between 18 and 24 years, elsewhere in the world the age range is much more diverse.

Like many Western languages, French speakers have a preference for mainstream social networks including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and most recently, TikTok. Facebook is now the second most popular website in France (after and accounts for 90% of the total French social media usage.
