Summary, in English

Research on the use of social network sites by elected politicians has often been narrowed

down to behaviour during election campaigns and using social media as a way of reaching

voters and journalists. This chapter studies the way that members of parliament in the

Swedish Riksdag use social media as a tool for intra-party competition. The analysed data

consist of interviews with 37 parliamentarians from the parliamentary parties in Sweden, a

parliamentary, party-centred democracy. The study shows that rather than simply adoption

or non-adoption of social media based on beliefs about its power to attract voters,

politicians have varying incentives to use and apply social media based on election cycles,

different arenas of influence, rank, cultural differences between parties and individual traits

such as age. It also shows that age is a more important factor in determining social media

style than others. It contains one of the first studies of internal use of social media in

parliamentary parties.
