The sixteen-year-old at the center of a nationwide Amber Alert last week stunned the media, the public, and psychologists this week when she reportedly broke her silence using social media.
Hannah Anderson was rescued on Saturday, after authorities say family friend James DiMaggio killed her mother and brother and then kidnapped the young girl.
Dimaggio was shot and killed by the FBI during Hannah's rescue.
On Monday, the young girl is believed to have turned to the internet to share details of her six days in captivity.
Law enforcement has not yet confirmed whether the profile on Ask.fm is indeed Hannah's, but a family friend says it's legitimate. The profile was created long before she was abducted, had no activity while she was missing, and came back to life on Monday.
"With Ask.fm, you go online, you set up a profile similar to what you would do on Facebook, and then anyone can ask you anything," explains Shauna Causey, who is the director of Social Media Club Seattle.
"Did you want to go with Dimaggio?" one user asked. Hannah replied, "No, not at all."
Another person asked "Why didn't you run?" and Hannah responded "He would've killed me."
The questions that follow cover everything from how she is coping with her brother and mother's deaths to the color she recently painted on her fingernails.
Causey says using social media in a situation likes this comes with both positives and negatives.
"If you want to break your silence, you can do it in the comfort of your own home and with no pressure," she said. "But one of the negatives we sometimes see with people sharing on social media sights is that they share too much."
Hannah's online activity has also caught the attention of doctors all over the country.
Dr. Cora Collette Breuner works in Adolescent Medicine at Seattle Children's Hospital. She says she's not surprised someone Hannah's age would immediately turn to the internet, but she is also worried about possible pitfalls.
"She could actually put herself at risk for someone hurting her again, and she's already been victimized enough," she said. "Whether this is therapeutic or not depends on your definition of therapeutic."
Breuner says Hannah will likely deal with the after-effects of her kidnapping for the rest of her life.
"What's the right answer?", she said. "Professional help through a qualified mental health team that can help her."
One thing psychologists and social media experts can agree on is that this is trend that will likely continue among the victims of high profile crimes, because social media allows them to share their story on their own terms.
It was just last month when the three women held against their will for more than a decade in Cleveland broke their silence on YouTube. That video now has more than three million views.
