Is she the oldest living Facebook user? Great-great-grandmother who just turned 105 claims to be most senior social networkerBy Beth Stebner
She may very well be the oldest living person on Facebook.
Maria Colunia Seguar-Metzgar was born in 1907 into an era without the internet, computers, television, and cell phones, but already has 85 friends on the social network.
And now, her family claims that the 105-year-old matriarch is the oldest living Facebook user.

Unofficial claim: Family members of Maria Colunia Segura-Metzgar, pictured, claim that the 105-year-old is the oldest Facebook user
Difficulty: Her family had trouble creating an account, as Facebook would only let her register to 101 (she was 104 at the time)
‘We are so lucky to have you in our life.’
However, the social network has not recognized her as the oldest member, perhaps in part because Facebook does not allow her to enter her birth year of 1907.
Her 60-year-old grandson, Anthony Segura, told ABCNews.com that he tried to sign his grandmother up on the site for months, but did not have the option of putting in her correct birth year.
‘I tried again and just put in 101 and it accepted it for the timeline, even though she was 104,’ he explained.

The 1932 Occidental College graduate was also given a guided tour of Facebook’s sprawling campus in Palo Alto.
MailOnline contacted representatives in Facebook to find out who is officially the oldest, but a request for comment was not immediately answered.
Mr Segura told ABCNews.com that while the official recognition would be appreciated, the real reason that his grandmother is on Facebook is to let other family members know ‘she’s still alive and kicking.’
Official honor: Florence Detlor, 101, centre, was given a tour of Facebook headquarters by Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg in August after she was named its oldest member

At her birthday party last week, she said: ‘I am very happy because all my family are here with me today. I am so happy,’ according to KOB.
She uses an iPad to log onto her page to read birthday wishes. When asked what she likes about Facebook, she responded: ‘I love it all!’
