Abstract

In this research note we present the first data collected in Spain on the political uses of the Internet, including consumption of political information, reception of mobilizing stimuli through the Internet, and online political participation. We explore the data by describing the indicators and then checking whether it is possible to identify the same modes of online political participation that are usually identified in the offline arena. Our results show that online political participation stands as an independent mode, while at the same time some of its features may complement offline modes such as contacting.
