The death of prominent Jamaicans, including journalist Ian Boyne, the world's oldest woman, Violet Moss Brown, designer Dexter Pottinger, businessman Lowell Hawthorne, and infamous gangsters 'Duppy Film' and 'King Evil' all figured prominently in list of stories most viewed by The Gleaner's online readers last year.

But it was news that students of St Catherine High School had been suspended following their participation in a raunchy social media challenge, which encouraged participants to verbalise the extent that they would go for sexual pleasure, and the ranking of Jamaica's 31 top-performing schools that topped the list of The Gleaner's most viewed stories for 2017.
