Has the Daily Mail finally met its match?

Facebook, the social networking site behemoth, has threatened to sue the paper after it wrongly alleged that 14-year-old girls who create a profile could be approached “within seconds” by older men who “wanted to perform a sex act” in front of them.

The paper apologised in print and online for the error, insisting it had been introduced by editors at the paper despite being told it was wrong.

But Facebook is still gunning for blood.  The company is considering legal action and looking at the “brand damage that has been done”.

Facebook staff also claimed that attempts to add a comment to the piece, as readers are able to do, were repeatedly blocked by the Daily Mail.

We can’t see the Mail wriggling out of this one too easily…
