    • Conclusions
      Candidates are well aware of the current momentum in Internet-based social networks and dedicate more and more financial and humanresources for transmitting their messages across the electorate through Web channels.
      From the experience gather during the 2011 Portuguese presidential election we can conclude that publicity is a key factor in this kind of initiatives.
      Webelieve that continuous dialogue may also improve citizen trust and accountability of politicians, although more research is needed to confirm this assumption.
    • Future Work
      Support for candidate-staff workflow
      Incorporate comments in the section dedicated to citizen polls to foster deliberation about the issues under discussion
      Implement citizen reputation schemes
