The case of Jill Meagher has had the country talking, particularly on social media, but now that someone has been charged it’s time to stop being specific, experts say.
Jill Meagher was mentioned on social media, both Twitter and Facebook, every 11 seconds early this morning. And the CCTV footage which showed her walking on Sydney Road on the morning she disappeared was shared on the same platforms about 7500 times within two hours, according to Kristen Boschma, the head of social media at communications firm Haystac.
Ms Boschma said the level of social media engagement with the Meagher case was “unprecedented other than natural disasters in Australia”.
