The top diary on Daily Kos for 2011 also happened to be the biggest political story on the biggest social network in the planet.

As 2011 comes to a close, the Facebook Political Team looked at some of the top sources for political news and what stories received the most traffic from Facebook through friend shares, pages, and social plug-ins such as the “like” button. The stories, which range from the capture and death of Osama bin Laden to the Occupy Wall Street movement, represent the type of political news people have been sharing and discussing with their Facebook friends this year.

1. Daily Kos: Open Letter to that 53% Guy [...]

Congrats to Max Udargo, and the most kick ass community online!

Update: And how many stories about the deficit in the top 40? One, proving that yet again, no one gives a shit about the deficit.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
