German officials are demanding that Facebook-organized parties should become a thing of the past due to some events that spiraled way out of control.

German officials are demanding that Facebook-organized parties should become a thing of the past due to some events that spiraled way out of control.

Two parties in Hamburg, Germany last month ended in violence, injuries and arrests The invites were sent out via Facebook and both hosts forgot to limit the events’ visibility to private, which resulted in pure bedlam.

The first incident involved a sweet 16 party for a young girl who slipped up, did not make her invitations private and a total of about 1,500 revellers showed up to help celebrate her special day. A phalanx of about 100 law enforcement officers were immediately summoned to try and bring order to the chaotic scene.
