The conversations between politicians and citizens in the Danish political system have traditionally taken place at political party meetings and at public meetings and hearings.

Through interviews with Danish Members of Parliament (MPs), the paper examines the advantages and disadvantages of online democratic conversations on Facebook as experienced by the MPs.
