Since last week’s earthquake and tsunami in Japan, mentions of ‘Japan’ over online media have understandably risen by near eight-fold over the course of the weekend.  As events in the Far East continue to dominate the news, it is also worth comparing this with another story that has been in the headlines for the past couple of weeks.

Coverage of the ongoing unrest in North Africa has declined in the same space of time, with mentions of ‘Libya’ dropping over 50% between Thursday last week and yesterday, illustrated in the chart below:
