Paris fears Facebook Party
May 13, 2010 1 Comment
The police in Paris warns for the biggest French cocktail party ever. On May 23 people want to organize a huge drinking party just below the Eiffel Tower. However, the police strongly disagrees with this party. It would be too difficult to maintain the public order in a crowd of ten thousands of people.
The ‘Plus grand apéro de France’ is an initiative that has started on Facebook. Earlier French Internet users organized similar events in other cities, though less populated. The organizers now want a national Facebook party. They aim for some 50,000 participants. At this moment about 13,000 people have signed in.
