Harris Interactive recently published an infographic from the 3rd barometer Photobox “The French and photo development”, carried out from 11 to 18 June 2012 on a sample of 1010 people aged 18 and over.
This reveals, among other things, that mobiles and social networks have enabled the renaissance of photo printing. 95% of French people today take digital photos and use their digital cameras (93%) almost as much as their mobile (78%) to do so.
38% of French people who take photos via their mobile phones say they are print, compared to 66% who save them on their computers. For an explanation, 30% of them have already lost their mobile and no longer want to take the risk of not finding the content that was there.
The majority of printed mobile photos are family photos (77%) and among those under 35, 1 in 2 primarily prints photos of their children.
Finally, 68% of those questioned declared that they were registered on a social network, and 71% of them shared their photos there. 96% of these publications are made on Facebook, well ahead of Copains d’avant (15%), Twitter (8%), Instagram (5%) and finally Pinterest (1.3%).
