Social media goes wild for the U.S. presidential elections
The 2012 U.S. presidential elections electrified social media users, as they took to sites like Facebook and Twitter to make comments during convention speeches and debates.
Facebook reported its top event of 2012 was the elections. Twitter reported that politics dominated the "Twitterverse" in 2012, with President Obama's "Four more years" photo becoming the most re-tweeted post in the site's history.
Top viral moments include, when Mitt Romney said he loved Big Bird, but would cut funding for the Public Broadcasting System (PBS); and when he said he had a binders full of women, in response to a question about pay equity.
