European elections: European politicians have too little online presence

Despite the growing importance of the Internet as an information channel MEPs have a scanty online presence, the daily Evenimentul Zilei writes: "In February 2005 Richard Corbett became the first MEP to set up his own blog. Today, more than four years later, the online medium remains little more than a subject for typical political rhetoric. Even when they come from Brussels or Strasbourg official statements sound just as wooden as they do here. … Even after the Internet proved its worth at least in one US election campaign only 11.5 percent of MEPs have a blog. … Yet according the website of the European Parliament 62 percent of voters have said they use the Internet to stay up to date on politics (twice as many as those who use print media, TV and radio). Some 57 percent believe social networks can be a useful tool in election campaigns."
