Kidnapped-Girls-Hashtag

In a Thursday, May 8, 2014 file photo, South Africans protest in solidarity against the abduction three weeks ago of hundreds of schoolgirls in Nigeria by the Muslim extremist group Boko Haram and what protesters said was the failure of the Nigerian government and international community to rescue them, during a march to the Nigerian Consulate in Johannesburg, South Africa. More than three weeks after Islamic extremists abducted the girls, world outrage is galvanizing Twitter and other social-media sites. But observers question whether the burst of online interest will last and whether it can ever elevate the case from a trending topic to a mandate for action. (AP Photo/Ben Curtis, File)
