    They could of picked the people from the litany of scientific discoveries or inventions that will actually effect humanity, in much more significant ways.

    Instead they chose something just a bit better than Kim Kardashian.

    putting the same guy on the cover of Time magazine, with three months, ignores the many more individuals and events that have taken place in our world during the year.

    nevermind the fact that its just silly.

    It's a person of the year, sure, they may effect humanity in the future, but they didn't do it this year.

    The persons of this year only affected a subset of humanity though.

    Time names 'The Protester' as Person of the Year - World - CBC News
    Definitely the best choice. Protesters around the world came out in a big way this year. They were easily the most talked about type of person and caused a lot of change in the world.

    Just popular in the news, whether good or bad.
    Well, popularity is part of it. If it were popularity alone, then they would have picked Kim Kardashian or another celebrity. But popularity certainly needs to be a part of it since Time's person of the year seems to be partially about who had the most influence on people and who dominated discussion. People who aren't well known don't typically do either and certainly don't do the latter.
