    Default [Disaster] The sad influences of Social Media, enhanced by the traditional media.

    A few weeks ago, a 15 year old girl accidentally invited all of her Facebook friends to her birthday party. A few people made a Facebook page for her birthday party, called "Project X". The media promoted this as a joke, but it all ended up in a big ravage in the small town called Haren. 34 arrested, more than 50 reported injuries, broken windows, plundered shops, devastated busses and trains, special forces on the scene, medical workers attacked and threatened. Long story short: a real disaster.



    The girl wanted to have a "sweet sixteen", and wanted to invite her friends to her home in Haren, but she accidentally invited all of her Facebook friends, and they invited all of THEIR friends. This resulted in a snowball effect of people wanting to go to the girl's birthday party. It seemed like an innocent prank at first, but people started inviting more and more of their friends to Project X. Now let's get a few facts straight.

    Of the 16 million inhabitants of the Netherlands, 24.000 people said they would come.

    On the radio, one of the DJ's said on air that it would be fun if everyone came, and that they should invite their friends too. (Later he tweeted: "Okay, I was stupid for inviting all those people to Project X. It was a very stupid idea." )

    On the news, people gave A LOT of attention to this subject. Not only that, but some talk shows made fun of Project X as well, making jokes about it and inviting people intended as a joke.

    The mayor of Haren said that there would be NO PARTY AT ALL in Haren, and said that everyone should NOT COME to Haren. This naturally provoked the mindless party hard youth to come, because they LOVE to provoke the mobile units etc. -_- This was so predictable.



    There were buses going to Groningen (one of the major cities in the Netherlands) and local authorities told everyone to go to Groningen instead to party over there, but that only resulted in buses being destroyed. Cars were flipped along the way, windows smashed.

    I guess people never learn. Anyway, luckily some peoplke organised the massive project "Clean X" (10.000 participants) to clean up the mess.



    It was said on the news that the ones responsible for the damage are the ones who are going to pay for it.

    I certainly hope so.

    This is one of the reasons why I don't have a facebook anymore. People just love to hop on the bandwagon, which is how it became so popular in the first place. Now almost everyone I know has one. When you get so many idiots together, it's a recipe for disaster, and that's exactly what happened in Haren. Word got out and it started off as an innocent joke, right? Obviously these facebook users took things too far and it escalated beyond the intended amusement. Not only was a poor girl's birthday ruined, but it caused such unnecessary chaos, and this is what she will remember looking back at her coming of age.

    Facebook wasn't the cause of this happening because it doesn't live or breathe. It sounds like the girl made a public post saying when and where her birthday party was going to be. She should have made invitations for only the people she wanted to come or she should have sent them individual private messages. Facebook isn't the one to blame for people's idiotic behavior. That's just like how people post statuses (they go to each one of their friends' walls), say something personal, and then get angry when someone has read it or said something about it. If you don't want the whole world to know, don't say it publicly. It's that simple.

    The girl will probably remember this for the rest of her life, and she (or her family) will probably be paying for some damage expenses too.

    Ah, friends of mine went to there. But they were just curious. I mean in total about 10 thousand people went to there. And about 19/20 where just curious. The "party" was live streamed and about 30-50k people where watching at all times.

    But yeah, its not entirely the fault of the media. But if they didn't spend alot of atention to this it wouldn't have escalated this bad. But then again, they just report news and its not like they had an idea of how big this would become.

    I also heard there was an prohibited to drink alcohol in the streets of Haren. But the youth didn't listen, and the police didn't do anything about it. (Not like they could.) But yeah its actually quite sad to see that people can do this. Even though it was said there wasn't any party.

    The people in Haren must've been terrified, if only the mob would be reminded OR CARE about that.

    I don't really know if you've followed it in the news or whatnot. ^^ But the girl forget to say it was a private party. So yeah you're right about that.
    Oh and fyi, its been decided the family doesn't have to pay anything. ^^

    To make it clear, I didn't say facebook was the primary reason. As the thread title implies, facebook was the initial media, i.e. the tool that was (accidentally) used, which caused a domino effect.

    But still, facebook has been very influential with information wealth, etc. I understand that it is not to blame, but at the same time, people do rely on it since it is very convenient and thus in some ways became a necessity. I have lived in many cities throughout my life and it has been very useful for me in organizing and keeping in touch with who I have known since kindergarten, etc. Yeah, it is nuts that this happened, but I hope the people who showed up do take proper responsibility.

    I agree that people are becoming more open in sharing private moments with people over the internet. Heck, I've probably said things on this forum that I wouldn't ever tell my parents! The thing with this incidence is that Facebook allows people to know your real name, location and appearance, which can prove very dangerous. However, if you make your profile private and post discreetly this sort of thing is less likely to happen.
    Gatecrashing parties is nothing new, but in this incidence it was magnified.

    Were you there Amber? xD
    I didn't even knew about the party til they showed it on the news.
    So I think we should blame the news for the party being so big.
    Also I felt annoyed so many people talked about it all weekend long.
    I mean... we all knew this was gonna happen, we all knew it was made public by mistake.
    Why all go talk about it how aweful it is/was. Just do your job and focus on that.

    That's what you get for being a stupid 14-year-old girl.
    And Facebook is also to blame.

    Personally, I find this hilarious. I find it kinda hard to believe she accidentally added all of her friends; it's not ridiculously easy to do. If anything she was probably too lazy to invite the ones she wanted out of her many many friends one-by-one and decided to add them all at once.

    That aside, you can't really blame this on Facebook. Blame the girl for being a noob, blame the people for being trolls, but you can't really blame Facebook for doing what it was made to do. That's like if she wrote a letter to one of her friends, inviting him/her and the same thing happened. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't blame the piece of paper/pencil.

    But hey, the important thing is now we know not to invite the whole world to our parties via Facebook; Use Myspace instead, you'll end up with about -10.

    TL;DR: This is why we can't have nice things.

    Well, that sounds awful. I blame the girls for inviting all of her FB friends. She should've checked first before making the event. Then there's the media who made announced the party to the public. Human error, I guess.

    Thanks to Ms Lucy for this awesome, funny gif.

    The person that you are now is not the person that I used to know. You're becoming a stranger that I've never met before. Not liking the change though.

    Why did you dislike my post? I was only telling PinkGalaxies that she had misinterpreted what I said. Facebook is not to blame. The idiots who use facebook are at fault here. I think that makes more sense than anything. People need to take responsibility for their actions instead of pointing the finger at facebook. It's their own stupidity that got them into a situation like that.

    They're both to blame! Facebook has been so in-yo-face with it's own advertising off the intertubes that even computer-challenged idiots would get hooked into it. And know what? Facebook was targeting such idiots since after 2003. Naive suckers ready to give away their data and money.
    I also hate you because you're like Stocking; a stuck-up, overgrown teenage-minded hussy who'll never stop sucking on her lolipop and move on to protein.

    Facebook was where it started, but it seems Project X and all the media reporters are to mostly be blamed for most all of this.

    I will gladly take that as a compliment. She is my favorite anime character! Besides, it's not like I really care if you hate me or not. You're a random guy on the internet and you don't even know me that well. I bet if you got to know me a lil better, you'd see I'm actually not so bad after all. Just sayin'...

    Yeah well, Karma's a harlot to the unjust, if you do recall. Maybe you would've stood a chance at being a Mary Sue on TV, but on the internet, you're confronted with the true vox populi.

    Default Re: [Disaster] The sad influences of Social Media, enhanced by the traditional media.

    The contents of post 1 is just one of the many examples why I love persons, but hate people. I neither use nor like Facebook; however, the very notion that a social network should ever be accountable for one's lack of common sense is a joke.

    Given the vagarity of the provided information, I cannot be satistfied that this girl "accidently" invited all her "friends" on Facebook (as Ellipsis put it); and some friends they must be since they invited their friends to her party as well.

    The girl is at fault for inviting her friends (and inconsiderate ones at that) to her party without paying due care and attention to which of her friends she were inviting (unless it truly was an accident--like a glitch that suddenly occured on Facebook against her control). The number of friends she invited is irrelevant since it only takes a single invitation sent to one untrustworthy person to start off a chain-reaction of multiple invites; the real issue is the quality of her friends. And I bet she's never met half of her so-called friends in real life either. Would you invite someone you've never met in the flesh to your party? Surely not, so why do it on Facebook? She is not to blame for what happened afterwards however; that's to say she's not responsible for the setup of Project X, the actions of her own friends, the "promotion" of the event by the media and the "disaster" that occured afterwards.

    The media is responsible for its own actions, but is not responsible for the actions of those who took it upon themselves to attend the event simply because the media (including the radio) elevated its status to public knowledge. I gather that by treating the event as a "joke", the media were denying the existance of the event anyway; however, the fact that they broadcasted any information about the event at all was unwise to say the least.

    Likewise, the mayor of H-something is not responsible for "provoking" the actions of the party-hard youths. The latter were likely looking for trouble anyway, and any event promoted through media and circulated through Facebook should have been enough material for them to get ideas, let alone the mayor's advice. Had everyone followed the mayor's advice in the first place, there'd be little incentive for these youths to involve themselves and stir up violence. I know the type, btw: they get off on doing their thing in full view of the general public (mostly bystanders that don't need to be there) whom are regarded as spectators, just like the good old days of The Colloseum. Take the spectators away and the idea of taking on entire mobile units is less attractive. Consider the 2011 summer riots that took place in Britain before this event which had 4 entities: a situation, youths looking for an excuse to start violence, the general public (potential spectators) and the mobile units. The youths feel more powerful when they are amongst the general public because their presence makes them to feel "protected", as if the public are behind them. The reason why mass events get out of control is because bystanders hinder the job of the mobile units (like I said before, many of them don't need to be there); if anything, I have more beef with bystanders than troublemakers.

    Facebook is far from a necessity dear, anyone in a third world country would tell you that. #First World Problems
