Hi Sarah,

I'm a french datajournalist interested in the "datasocial" area. My last
piece, with an other fellow journalist (Jessica Dubois), was focus on "La
france vu par le bon coin
<http://www.hexagones.fr/article/2014/12/23/la-france-vue-par-leboncoin>" .
"Le bon coin" is a market place like craig list with about 25 million

Would be happy to talk about it with you.
