World’s Oldest Facebook User Lillian Lowe 104 birthday
This is the oldest Facebook user !
Great grandmother Lillian Lowe today claimed she is the world’s oldest Facebook user at 103 – and she updates her status from her iPad.
Just two months away from her 104th birthday, the family of young-at-heart Lillian believe she is the oldest of the social networking website’s 500 million users around the world.
The pensioner is thought to have taken the crown of oldest Facebook user from 104-year-old Ivy Bean who died in her sleep in July.
‘I love it – it is very exciting. It’s a wonderful way of finding out about things. But I must say it’s a dreadful waste of time. I’m sure there are lots of other things I should be doing rather than playing on a computer.
‘I have been on Facebook for a few weeks now, some of the grandchildren do get up to some antics.
I have seen a few things over the years, so nothing really shocks me these days anyway.
‘I go on the Facebook about twice a week, I have about 30 friends at the moment so there’s quite a lot to catch up on. At the moment I use my grandson’s iPad but I am very hopeful to get one of my own, there are some great new models out at the moment.’
Gordon Brown’s wife Sarah led the tributes to Mrs Bean who had clocked up an astonishing 56,300 followers on Twitter, and another 5,000 on Facebook.
