We start with a story which may have affected more parts of the world than any other story this year. The Occupy protests began in New York City this year as thousands gathered to demonstrate against a laundry list of unjust policies and behaviors. As time went on, the protests moved to thousands of cities around the world, but their motivations for protesting became just as diverse as the cities in which the demonstrations were held.
Working on weibo
One of the biggest stories coming out of China this year was the explosion of weibo, China’s twitter-like micro-blogging service. A growing number of people are using the site everyday. Aside from following celebrities and sharing social news, people are turning to weibo as a news source. That may not be the smartest idea, considering false stories of prominent authors dying and banks handing out money for old coins got huge publicity. Then there’s the story of Guo Mei Mei.

Western celebrities may have gained popularity on China’s weibo sites this year, but many more have made headlines for reasons other than their on-screen performances. For this week’s round-up, we bring you all of the best celebrity gossip from 2011.
