One of my students in DIKULT110: Kommunikasjon i sosiale medier is taking the course as part of her BA in French, and so needs to find French language sources and to write in French herself. Kristine Lowe (@kristinelowe) connected me to the wonderful HÈloÔse BriËre (@LOeez), who gave me lots of good starters for anyone looking for the French hubs of social media. I thought I’d share them here – I’m sure I’m not the only Anglo who’s interested!

And I must say, HÈloÔse herself writes interesting tweets. I also heard from @NicolasLoubet who tweets about social media in French and English.

    Good point, David! Though he mostly writes in English now, doesn’t he? This student has to actually find French-language material.

    Thanks for the reminder, Mark – but they’re more hypertext and e-lit than social media, aren’t they?
