Handling Internet Media Justice in Australia

According to this article, the Australian  media is prevented from mentioning the identity of a man accused of murder ibut because of Facebook and the near impossibility of such order reaching individuals posting information on social networking sites, his identity became public anyway.  Its hard to think of how to approach this issue in light of the ease of using social networking by just about anyone.  Will the orders have to go against the providers?  How will they monitor or prevent publication of some information but not other information?
