facebook lies

This is not political but is there any recourse when distorted information and outright lies are posted on face book? I speak from a person viewing on the internet and personal experiences.  We had an incident with a renter who went on face book and told complete falsehoods and we ignored it. We could only hope people who knew us would consider the source. It seems this goes beyond freedom of speech.

Re: facebook lies

To win damages against someone who has libeled you, you must prove the written statement was:

false
harmed your reputation or your business’s reputation
published to at least one other person
about you or your business specifically, and
made with some degree of fault and intention.
