Online Media Details for NZ Parties and Members of Parliament (2011-2014)

The database below contains the website, Facebook and Twitter details of our current parties and MPs. Credit to David Farrar who created the original version of this database.

My method for collecting this data was as follows:

  • Details for individual party websites were sourced from the Parliamentary list of parties in parliament.
  • Links to MP websites were sourced from Parliament’s MP profiles or the main party websites (for example, If a link could not be found here I ran a Google search for the MP’s name. I also ran a generic or .org.nzsearch.
  • Links to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube were taken from the Parliamentary site, main party websites, and individual MP websites. If they could not be located there then a Google search was done for Facebook pages and profiles, and Twitter accounts.
  • I also cross-referenced the Twitter profiles with those listed on the Adopt An MP website.
  • Outdated Facebook pages or profiles where the MP has expressly indicated they have shifted accounts have not been included in this database.

Those who are interested in the various social media metrics (e.g. followers, engagement and so forth) of these accounts should take a look at Brand Gauge.

Please note that as of 22 June 2014 I have stopped updating this database so that I can concentrate on maintaining the database for the 2014 general election.
