Euronews on the digital trends study

May 19, 2009 at 9:42 am 1 comment

European lawmakers underuse the internet according to new research. The findings show that while three quarters of MEPs use their personal websites to reach the electorate, only a minority understands the potential of using online technologies to help them interract with people. Only half visit blogs once a week or more, and two thirds have never heard of the social networking tool Twitter.

    I think we may see a major shift with not only the new Parliament, but also the increased demand for transparent, accountable politics that will undoubtedly not remain a solely UK phenomenon.
