The article reports on the decision of New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to serve online social networking site Facebook with a writ of subpoena for its failure to respond to complaints about sexual predators and inappropriate content on its site. In a statement, the New York Attorney General's office said it had tested Facebook's safety controls and found them inadequate to protect underage users, despite the company's claim that it is a safer alternative to MySpace. Despite the security allegations, Microsoft reportedly wants a minority stake piece in the Palo Alto, California-based company, seeking to buy up to 5 percent of the company for $300 million to $500 million.
