Privacy: a party gone wrong

Louise, 19, wants to get even with Natalie, 18, over a minor grudge and creates a fake account on a social networking site on which she then posts an open party invitation. Huge crowds of people turn up and the house gets trashed. Natalie’s parents are furious and demand that the police take action against the social networking site, so they can find out who made the anonymous posting. In this debate, students will explore what legal action the family can take and discuss whether the owner of the social networking site be prosecuted.
