The head of FACEBOOK magazine Nick Clegg has agreed to meet a mourning mother whose daughter killed herself after finding the suicide guides on social media.
The broken heart Ruth Moss will speak to the former deputy prime minister in the coming days as a result of pressure from the Sun on Sunday.
Last week, we talked about how Ruth was shocked to find out that her 13-year-old daughter, Sophie Parkinson, committed suicide five years ago after seeing graphic content and unsettling suicides and self-harm on websites including Facebook.
Yet, the father of three Clegg defended his company's decision not to block the images, saying that in some cases they could lead children to seek help.
Research nurse Ruth, 47, from Edinburgh, replied: "What Nick Clegg said is dangerous and misleading.
"There is enough false news on Facebook without him pretending anything."
He will now speak directly with the long-standing politician, 52, who has moved to California to become vice president of global affairs for Facebook.
Mom Ruth and the NSPCC are demanding that social media companies be forced to comply with a new "duty of care" law that protects children.
If you need someone to talk to the Samaritans, you can call 116 123 or call CALM on 0800 58 58 58.
Facebook said: "We are happy to organize a call with Nick."
Meanwhile, Clegg's wife Miriam Gonzalez Durantez, 50, provoked indignation by complaining about life on Instagram in their new £ 7 million pad.
One source says that Mosseri, 36, "establishes and manages" the profiles of both children, both under three years of age.
Instagram has a policy whereby children must have "at least 13 years" to join them.

However, children under 13 can have accounts managed by an adult, so Mosseri has not broken rules.
But Signy Arnason, an expert in the fight against child abuse online, said it was a bad idea. He said: "Images can be photoshop to make them explicit".
