As 2012 comes to a close, journalists are looking back at the biggest stories and events of the year. We'll be collecting them here, using Rebel Mouse.

As I write in a separate story about Rebel Mouse, the platform can:

  • bring multiple social networks together in one space.
  • make all that work you put into social networking accessible to people who don’t use those networks.
  • be as automated as you want or as manually curated.

Our list below is manually curated.

If you see an end-of-year list we should include, please send a link to tips@poynter.org.
