MINNESOTA (PIX11) – It’s never too late to do something new — unless you’re 113 years old and don’t want to lie about your age on Facebook.

Minnesota resident Anna Stoehr wanted to sign up before her next birthday, but apparently Mark Zuckerberg, who just turned 30, never envisioned anyone her age making a Facebook account.  Born in 1900, Stoehr was forced to become a younger woman to fill out her profile — the earliest available birth year is 1905.

The tech-savvy centenarian has a Verizon sales rep to thank for introducing her to social media and the Internet, KARE11 reports.  She apparently met him when her 85-year-old son decided to get a smartphone.

Stoehr is now exploring the digital world with her iPad and loves using FaceTime, she says.
