Charlie Hebdo attack: #JeSuisCharlie goes viral

People have taken to social media to voice their anger and sadness against the Charlie Hebdo attack, which left 12 people dead.

Some Islamist gunmen had attacked the office of Paris-based magazine Charlie Hebdo just a week ago.

The hashtag #JeSuisCharlie has gone viral and has garnered support from every corner of the world. According to Simplify360, more than 10 million mentions on the Charlie Hebdo attack have been recorded so far. Hashtags like #CharlieHebdo and #JeSuisCharlie were the most popular with 4.7 million and 3.1 million mentions so far.

Most of the mentions regarding the incident came from India, which led with 19 per cent, followed by the US with 16 per cent.

Among the platforms, Twitter was the main outlet, accounting for 47 per cent of all mentions, followed by Google Plus at 32 per cent. Facebook surprisingly was the least used platform with just 3 per cent of the total mentions.

Charlie Hebdo responded by saying that the front cover of the first edition since the attack would have a cartoon of Prophet Mohammed. The magazine’s edition is expected to be out on Wednesday.

Cartoonists from across the world also expressed their solidarity towards the magazine.
