E-005987/2020(ASW)
Answer given by Mr Hahn
on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-005987/2020

The Commission is committed to clear and transparent communication on its work, including on its policy and legislative proposals. As part of its corporate communication strategy online, the Commission uses several social media services that enable it to ensure the widest possible reach of its communication to EU citizens.

Open-source interconnected social and publishing platforms can be important drivers of innovation and competition by allowing consumers a wider choice. Their use by public authorities can help reach out to some citizens that do not follow other types of social media.

The Commission is regularly updating its corporate communication strategy and the tools that it uses for communication outreach. The Commission’s services are currently looking into the use of open-source decentralised social media networks. This would imply creating its accounts on existing platforms and/or setting up its own equivalents of such services.
