A YP Country Times Facebook post asking people to provide police with information about the maleâ€™s whereabouts was shared 168 times yesterday afternoon.
But police still could not find Brenden Gorman and released a picture of the suspect to aid the search.
The Country Times posted the photo and additional information and this was shared 143 times.
SA Police also put the information out on its Facebook page and it was shared hundreds of times and spread around the state.
SAPOL frequently utilises Facebook, and other media sources, to ask for information and assistance from the public.
Often, this results in a missing person or a suspect being found.
Another example of people power coming together was the protest against the Emergency Services Levy increase.
After a callout, more than 40 farmers gathered to voice their concerns about the massive hikes to their bills.
Maybe their protests wonâ€™t make the government change its mind but at least they are having a go. If you sit on your hands and do nothing, there will simply continue to be more take and less give.
We will also see if people power wins out this Thursday when parliament votes on changes to marine park no-take zones, particularly around Port Wakefield.
For the full story, plus plenty of other news you wonâ€™t find on Facebook, you canâ€™t go past the Country Times.
Ok, so we may be a little bit biased, but we genuinely believe the paper has a lot to offer every week.
As well as extra details and information about breaking news, we also share whatâ€™s happening in the community as well as profiles on local characters.
We believe in the power of the press, and the people, and hope you do too.
