Party page ‘likes’ grow, but police can do nothing

A FACEBOOK page posting details of Sunshine Coast party locations has grown in popularity overnight.

The site, which attracted more than 950 "likes" in less than a week, grew to more than 1000 supporters after a story in the Daily yesterday.

The page was established to urge people to post the times and locations of open house parties held on the Coast.

The Daily wrote a story after concerns by a private party security firm that the site was irresponsible.

Gatecrash Security managing director Mark Ellis said anyone who posted open house details online was asking for trouble.

"I can almost guarantee there will be violence, assault and property damage," Mr Ellis said.

Details of one party scheduled at a Buddina address on Thursday night was posted on the site, although Kawana Police yesterday said there were no reports of a party.

A spokeswoman for the Queensland Police Service said they could not stop the page and there was nothing they could do legally.

"We have no grounds to have the pages removed if there is no criminal offence being committed," the spokeswoman said.

"All we can do is report the page to Facebook."
