Title How do Members of Parliament value their presence in the Social Media? 10th term Spanish Parliament Internet Use Analysis Summary The study analyzes Members of Parliament’s assessment on Internet use as communication, deliberation and consultation instrument for parliament activity. In order to do so we have analyzed the replies from the members of parliament to the questionnaire sent to study their activity in the Social Media. Conclusions indicate a gradual consolidation of Internet as political communication instrument. The main challenges derive from the lack of training and practice both from politicians and citizens to find ways that would turn digital parliaments into open parliaments. Keywords Internet; Parliament; Political Participation; Social Media; Members of Parliament.
