113-Year Old Woman Fakes Her Age to Get on Facebook

It's been a while since Anna Stoehr, 113, of Plainview, Minnesota has been carded. Just shy of 114, she decided to sign up for Facebook. That's when she ran into problems.

You have to be at least 13 to be on Facebook. But the maximum age Facebook accepts is 99. So Ms. Stroehr lied about her age and claimed to be 14 years younger than she really is in order to sign up. A Verizon salesman helped her get set up:

Joseph Ramireza was selling an iPhone to Stoehr's 85-year-old son, who started talking about his mother. Ramireza said he had to meet her.

"She's become something of a kindred spirit," Ramireza told KARE.

He's helped her use FaceTime to video chat with friends on an iPad and has been teaching her to use email and Google search.
