Thanks to all our amazing users, this was a good year for Storify. We were named one of Time Magazine's 50 Best Web Sites, and one of Entrepreneur Magazine's 100 Brilliant Companies. More than 4 million times in 2011, our users curated social media into a story.
When journalists were arrested and protesters pepper-sprayed, the Occupy Wall Street movement turned to Storify more than any other platform to tell one of the biggest stories of the year. Student journalists stepped up to cover the news on Storify when professionals in the field were being arrested.
Now it's your turn to help us choose Storify's best stories of 2011. What makes a great social media story? We've pulled together 10 nominees for the Storify Story Of The Year. But you can vote for any Storify story just by clicking on our new Like button, now at the top of every Storify story. So you can vote for any Storify story, including your own, for Storify Story Of The Year.
Clicking the Like button on any story gives that story one vote as Story Of The Year. You can like as many stories as you want, but you can only like each story once. The story with the most Likes on Dec. 29 wins Story Of The Year, and the author will get an iPad. There will be a running tally of the most-liked stories on our Story Of The Year page.
