As usual, it’s taking society time to catch up with social changes, including the Internet.

Here’s a good case in point from the Telegraph’s website:

>>Authorities have called for parties promoted on the social networking site to be prohibited in advance if police believe they pose a threat to law and order.

Last month 100 Hamburg police offers made 11 arrests when 1,600 people gatecrashed a 16-year-old girl’s birthday.

The girl, who had to flee the party, had apparently forgotten switch on her Facebook privacy settings when inviting friends to the celebration.
