During Singles Week (the third week of September), I posted the list of the most popular Living Single posts since Singles Week of the previous year, based on the number of page views. Now, at the end of the calendar year, I’ll list the buzziest posts from 2012 – the most Stumbled Upon, the most “Liked,” and the most commented upon.

Surprisingly, these three indicators of buzziness are mostly independent – there were only two overlaps in my lists of Top 4 for each.
