Centenarian Facebooker is the Oldest Social networker
Lillian Lowe switched on to Facebook when her husband died in July.Â Now the 103 year-old from Tenby, Pembrokeshire (UK) is the world's oldest known social networker and has been inundated with friend requests, as reported by the BBC.
With over a thousand friend requests from around the world, Lillian saidÂ "They have been very kind and uplifting messages. I can't reply to them all."
She says she's also having fun with Twitter too.Â Â "I use it just for amusement really. I'm only a beginner. I do enjoy it, very much."
There are challenges for people of senior years using social networks.Â She said that people her age would need "an active brain" to use the social networking site.Â This is something that Facebook would hopefully take note of as we move towards an increasingly elderly population.
Lillian is very grateful for the kindness and friendship she's been shown, saying she has "had messages from all over the world. I'd like to say thank you very much".Advertisement
