Hi,

Does anyone know of a list, or any work towards compiling one, with the social presence URLs of Senators and Members? Particularly, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, but any social media is useful. Also, the same for all parties, but I think that will be easier to compile anyway.

Thanks.

OpenAustralia.org has all the social links from APH displayed on MP profile pages, e.g. see "more useful links" sidebar: http://www.openaustralia.org/mp/bob_katter/kennedy

This data is grabbed by this scraper on Morph where you can easily grab the lists a spreadsheet: https://morph.io/openaustralia/aus_mp_contact_details

What are you interested in using this for?

Cheers,

Henare

Oh, that is great!

Some volunteers here (Public Knowledge Workshop in Israel) are working on an extension to our “Open Parliament” (somewhat similar to Open Australia) which collates all public information from social media of parliament members. 

I thought it might be a nice little project to take some of their code and do some analysis of social media interaction of Australian MPs, for GovHack.

I think it would be interesting to also scrape YouTube for data, even if the member does not have a page. For example:
