"Even if we can prove that Facebook played a role in Haren we shouldn't do that.

We are the technology and we are responsible"

In the 21st of September 2012 a Facebook invitation resulted in a riot in Haren, a little village in Groningen the Netherlands. This so called Facebook Riot was named Project X Haren, after the movie. The 24-year-old Danny Mekic, in 2012 named the most successful young entrepreneur in the Netherlands, advocates that Facebook is not responsible for the disastrous result of events. It is the actions of involved stakeholders, including the media, that resulted in the big trouble we know from the news flashes.
