Anna Stoehr, one of the oldest living people in the world at age 113, has finally got herself a Facebook account. What she had to do was to lie about her actual age as the earliest birth year listed on Facebook to create a new profile is 1905.

Stoehr, the oldest resident of Minnesota, decided to fudge her age by 15 years and submitted her age as 99 to get through, KARE-TV reported.
Born Oct 15, 1900, she is set to celebrate her 114th birthday next week.
