The Netherlands, facebook teenager party gets 30,000 RSVPs

A teenaged girl in Haren (a small town by Groningen, M’s hometown), announced her 16-year-old birthday party on facebook. A lot of her friends replied, “Yes” (they would attend). But so did 30,000 other people.

On Friday night, thousands of  young people, and assorted other troublemakers, swarmed Haren for the girl’s party. She and her family vacated the area. Good idea because the town was hit with an extremely ridiculous amount of violence, theft, damage and turmoil. Riot control was outnumbered .

All told, this innocent facebook invitation, cost the town over €1 million in damages. All because Little Miss Sweet 16 neglected to make her invitation PRIVATE.
