A year later, it's Friday again, it's still Rebecca Black's moment, and she remains a person of interest.

Love her, hate her, but once a week you can't avoid her.

A year after her producers uploaded her "Friday" music video to YouTube, Rebecca Black remains a person of interest.

Scott Lamb of Buzzfeed has written the definitive history of "Friday"'s first anniversary, from its pickup by The Daily What to its march to infamy via Tosh.0.

But what I found fascinating is that the execrably catchy music video, and Black herself, haven't seen a large jump in mentions for the occasion. Instead, a search on Topsy, the social-media search engine, reveals that the level of attention directed at the teen meme queen has stayed steady. (It doesn't even pop on Fridays, as one might think.)

Here's a collection of reactions to the anniversary on Twitter:

I bought myself 60,000 YouTube views for Christmas
On Dec. 23, a YouTube video that I'd posted in 2008 had 473 views to its name. The video was an inside joke, a clip I shot myself of a friend talking about telegrams on a balcony. It was a parody of rapper Cam'ron's infamous callout of 50 Cent, and I believe I knew everybody who had ever watched it.
