ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico (CBS Las Vegas) – Facebook is not just for the young.

Maria Colunia Segura-Metzgar celebrated her 105th birthday on Tuesday and shared it with her Facebook friends, KOB-TV reports.

Her family believes she may be the oldest Facebook user. Earlier this year, Facebook celebrated a birthday of a user who turned 101, according to KOB.

Anthony Segura, Maria’s grandson, told the station that Facebook may not recognize her as its oldest member because he was not able to put her birthday in the account.

“Facebook has a problem. They would only go back to the 101st birthday,” Segura told KOB. “And every time I tried to put that she was 104 it kept coming up with an invalid date.”

Segura feels it is great that his grandmother is on Facebook as he feels it keeps her mentally sharp.
