In a hectic final day of campaigning social networking sites have been at the forefront of efforts to both try and win last minute support and encourage the population to get out and vote.
In a move to try and gain as many votes as possible the Conservative Party has bought the main ad on the front page of the UK version of YouTube for the entire day.
Facebook also got in on the act, adding an "I've voted" button to its website in an effort to help collect the number of UK users that had voted and remind others to do the same. Currently, over 550,000 people had used the button.
Twitter trending topics for the UK showed that the vast majority of discussions were dominated by the election, with all but one of the ten topics relating to the election as of lunchtime today.
What will disappoint the main parties, though, is that the top trending topics are of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst and the Monster Raving Loony party.
However, despite all parties looking to use social media sites during campaigning to generate support, their domain name management strategies appear to have been found wanting, according to research by domain name firm Sedo.
Its research found out that only Nick Clegg had registered his .com domain, while all the major leaders had failed to register either .co.uk or .org domains.
"Domain names are key to managing your online reputation and it's surprising to see that high profile candidates have not made steps to acquire and maintain their online reputation," said Sedo chief operating officer Jeremiah Johnston.
