2011 was a whirlwind year. And with the explosion of social media outlets like Twitter, it’s been exponentially easier for us to keep up with what’s been going on in the world. With everything from the Occupy Movement, to Osama bin Laden’s capture, to the passing of Apple’s leader, Steve Jobs, we’ve been able to stay informed and communicate with each other, down to the second.
Here at WhitePages, we have spent the last year looking at a variety of different names from a number of categories – sports, food, even Weiner-esque.
