While many of us watched are watching this year's debates on television, millions interact and follow the candidates' every move on Facebook and Twitter.

Many people involved with social media for Campaign 2012 are younger voters, like a group of students at Huntingdon College following the debate at a watch party.

Huntingdon will host another watch party next Tuesday for the second presidential debate.
