This article refers to the concept of a political personal website as a means of connection with the public, in the realm of Israeli Knesset Members (henceforth – MKs). Contact narrative - as reflected through sites' texts and MKs open questionnaires' answers - was examined in light of the sites' human interactive applications enabling connectivity between representatives and citizens. The research rationale stems from the intriguing question: are there any discrepancies between the texts and the actual applications used by Israeli parliamentarians; as sometimes website' texts vis-à-vis its applications can reflect completely different attitudes and discordance.
I will begin by briefly surveying the research literature. Next, I turn to outline research stages and methods employed. Empirical findings will be presented next, accompanied by text excerpts reflecting the Contact narrative. I conclude with a discussion regarding the findings, their meaning and practical implications.
