Huffington Post to Expand to France and Brazil

And where else? The audience wants to know

     Since late May, when the AOL Huffington Post Media Group launched Huffington Post Canada, international audiences have been speculating as to just how far the news site intends to expand. The U.K. edition, announced in March, will be out July 6, Huffington said during AOL’s presentation at Cannes Lions. In addition, Huffington announced forthcoming launches for France and Brazil.

     The audience at the Palais was eager to know just how far Huffington intended to take things. Will there be a HuffPost Italy? one asked. When will HuffPost come to Eastern Europe? asked another.

     Huffington, seemingly aware of the torrent of interest she’d unleashed, advised inquiring minds to send her an email (something she had given out as a sort of invitation to blog for her site, presumably for free).

     Huffington was joined on stage by AOL CEO Tim Armstrong, who said that on Tuesday AOL would announce the findings from their recent research into how consumers use and interact with websites and online advertising. More on that announcement tomorrow.
