real potential danger for 'twestival'? Gatecrashers invade �1m Kingston house for boy's Facebook party | News

Gatecrashers invade �1m Kingston house for boy's Facebook party | News

Joking aside, this is truely terrible story..

which highlights danger of 'too much transparency' or 'free invite to all'.. yes, the kid should have thought it through before sending out a 'general' invite..

but, hey even now some adults are organising 'free for all' events on social networks like Facebook, twitter etc.

I personally see it poses great opportunities of making a difference.. but as this story shows, security and safety could really become a major issue, the more transparent a network maybe.

Is there easy way to ensure security??

Twitter ID? kind of verified ID per individual user? hhmm.. we need a viable solution sooner, rather than later!!
