Submission + - Facebook challenge after girl's death (theguardian.com.au)

An anonymous reader writes: A prosecutor has opened an investigation into how Facebook allowed the publication of insults and bullying posts aimed at a 14y Carolina Picchio who took her own life after a gang of boys circulated a video on Facebook of her appearing drunk and dishevelled in a bathroom at a party.

The Italian Parents Association has filed a criminal complaint against Facebook for allegedly having a role in the instigation of Carolina's suicide. ''This is the first time a parents' group has filed such a complaint against Facebook in Europe,'' said Antonio Affinita, the director. ''Italian law forbids minors under 18 signing contracts, yet Facebook is effectively entering into a contract with minors regarding their privacy, without their parents knowing.''
