ComRes used our market-leading omnibus surveys of MEPs and Brussels Influencers to measure how the most important EU stakeholderS use online news and social media websites.
We surveyed 100 MEPs, and 200 Brussels Influencers (including Commission officials, staff of EU agencies and Permanent Representations, NGOs, Academics and Journalists), in November and December 2011, as well as February and March 2012.
We asked how often these vital stakeholders use key online news and social media websites in their professional capacities. We tested sites including BBC News, EurActiv, the Wall Street Journal, Wikipedia, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
The results can be downloaded using the links on the right hand side of this page in an easily accessible visual format. They provide a useful tactical tool for all public affairs practitioners, looking to communicate with any of the influential Brussels stakeholders.
Further commentary and analysis can be found in our presentation to the ComRes/ZN Social Media Monitor Launch in May 2012, and in the video from ComRes Chairman Andrew Hawkins, below:
