This video is of a national news report about a Facebook event that went horribly wrong. A 15-year-old girl wanted to throw her 16th birthday party at her house in Hamburg, Germany and made an event to invite her closest friends. However, she forgot to make the event private and the consequences were grave. I happened to be in Hamburg when this happened and the city and subways were insanely filled with thousands of people from out of town who were there just for Thessa’s party. I know the video is in German, but take a look because it is really fascinating. Around 5 minutes you’ll see the height of the party and the police forces that had to be used to control the crowds. I don’t think this sort of thing could ever have happened before the social media boom.
