11,5% of MEPs (European Parliament) are bloggers

by Laurent François

Public Affairs 2.0 published an impressive study that demonstrates that more that one member of European Parliament on ten is a blogger..

I copy-paste you the whole article:

“Anyway we have looked at every MEP to see how they are doing on websites, blogs, facebook wikipedia and so forth. This post will look at the intrepid MEP bloggers. And here they are the key stats:

  • 82 89 MEPs have blogs, which equates to just over 10% 11% of all MEPs. A full list with hyperlinks is at the bottom of this post.
  • France and UK currently have the most MEP bloggers (11), with Spain a close second (10). Germany and new kids on the block Romania follow with 7 bloggers each. Surprisingly Italy, a supposedly blogging friendly country, has only 2 MEP bloggers and is easily outstripped by Poland who has 6.
  • In terms of groups the socialists are the clear winners with 34 36 MEP bloggers and are some way ahead of the EPP who have just 19 20. Meanwhile the Greens, 10 MEP bloggers, are just behind ALDE who have 11 MEP bloggers.

Anyway, for the record, these are the MEP bloggers we’ve found (and been told about!) with hyperlinks to their blogs – if you think we missed any, do let us know:

It proves that social media are fast becoming true and tangible generators of influence. And that blogging as a direct conversation with the local citizens is a good format.

Thanks Gautier Demouveaux for this breaking news.
