MP’s going online. A regional study of politicians’ presence on the Internet
In the article we consider whether the availability of web communication tools affected the MP’s and MEP’s readiness to take advantage of the opportunities resulting from permanent and targeted communication in the inter-election period. The main assumption underlying the chosen topic is that despite the phenomenon of permanent campaign and the development of own political media, particularly social media, politicians fail to communicate effectively. The empirical study at a regional level covered as many as 47 Lower Silesia’s Members of Polish and European Parliament.
