Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg posted a photo Monday of herself, Detlor and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
"Honored to meet Florence Detlor, who at 101 years old is the oldest registered Facebook user," Sandberg wrote. "Thank you for visiting us Florence!"
Detlor says on her profile page, that she's a 1932 graduate of Occidental College. She joined the site three years ago and at the time of her big visit, had 652 Facebook friends.
She's a regular, but not overly prolific, poster on the site. In the three years, she's "liked" only two things: the Sony Dash, a pre-iPad tablet of sorts, and Dogwork.com, a site that specializes in animal videos.
There's competition in the offing now though, with some light-hearted comments from users trying to get their even older relatives to sign up.
"Ok -- so now I'm feeling competitive and ready to get my grandma on Facebook. She's 103. ;-)" wrote a commenter on Sandberg's page.
Florence may be leading the bunch, but she's not alone - the percentage of Internet users 65 and older, has doubled in recent years and continues to climb, proving that technology is the way to go to keep in touch with those great-grandchildren and make friends around the globe, at any age!
