Welcome to the micro-site for our French Presidential Election study.

Over a series of three reports, we will measure the reach and impact of unconventional media sources in connection with the 2017 French presidential election. We will discover the links and content people share, how they share them, what they hope to accomplish, and how they perceive this content through the techniques of social listening.
