Social media take over, candidates taking advantage
If its not evident already, Wednesday’s presidential debate will prove to many just how powerful social media has become.
In an increasingly connected age, both campaigns have embraced social media and are using it to reach out to a new demographic.
Millions are following the candidates on Facebook and Twitter.
CMU students we talked to today say social media's influence is unavoidable, especially in an election year.
"I think it's a huge impact,” Nicole Matthiessen, said. “They say this race is all about hitting the teenagers and the college students.”
We invite you to join us during the debate on our social networks.
You can do that on Twitter by mentioning us at KJCTNews8 and on our Facebook page.
