Teen 'Rager' Party Allegedly Caused $45,000 in Damage After Online Alert

The Globe said said the teen felt bad for what had happened, but he had always been friendly with the son and the party was planned. The Globe also says he claimed two other parties were held at the Abbett house that week.

"Pretty much everyone in the house was intoxicated, and when you have that many people in one place, not much good can happen from that,'' he said. "It was a house party that went wrong. Everyone was wreaking havoc.''

For Jill Abbett, the use of Facebook in this incident and others to promote and exploit an open house is a major problem.

"Facebook is totally out of control," she said. "They are having these parties they call 'ragers' that they advertise about on Facebook when someone's house is free, and they get off trashing people's property."

Abbett also said another family in East Bridgewater had something similar happen, where a party got out of control after being advertised on Facebook and the home was damaged.

Facebook's Malorie Lucich told ABC News her company was concerned about any misuse of Facebook.

"We encourage those who spot troublesome behavior to immediately report it to us, and to discuss with parents, teachers, and others in the community who can help," Lucich said.
