Abstract [en]

For more than a decade scholars have shown interest in politicians uses of the Internet. In this reflection paper we have gauged literature on this topic and have identified two research opportunities for interested scholars. First, research should move beyond dichotomization such as conceiving of the Internet as either revolutionary or normalizing. Secondly, scholars within the field should contribute to the arguably limited knowledge base on online practices of politicians at regional and local levels. With these two recommendations we argue that the research field would move forward and generate new and interesting results.
