Before Tuesday night's presidential debate, we asked what questions you would ask President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

Click here to see what some would have asked if they had the chance.

Some of those questions on gas prices and taxes were addressed. Others, such as the one about climate change, were not.

But the debate did spur a number of lively -- or vitriolic, depending on the perspective -- exchanges between the two candidates. And while many were left wanting more specifics, the candidates did present sharply contrasting views on issues ranging from immigration reform to job creation, conflict in the Middle East to contraception.

So in the same vein as our "What would you ask?" story, we wanted to know: "What did you think?"

Below are some of the responses we got via social media.

@adriregojo @UniNewsPolitics NOT ONE COMPANY IS GOING TO STAY IN USA, IF U KEEP TAXING, AND SENDING COMPANIES OUT @BARACKOBAMA

@KathyJCC Therefore stick to what you know!!! RT @UniNewsPolitics: "I spent my life in the private sector, not the government." - Romney #debate2012

@LucyFlores "@UniNewsPolitics: "Governor, you're the last person that's going to get tough on China." - Obama to Romney #debate2012" / truth

@deMeloMarcelo Polêmica: RT @UniNewsPolitics: Romney says he supports E-Verify, but doesn't think Arizona immigration law "model for whole nation."
