MINNESOTA (WITI) — A Minnesota woman ran into a problem setting up her new Facebook page — when she entered her age, it bounced back as invalid.

The site says users have to be anywhere from 13 to 99 years old. But Anna Stoehr is 114-years-old.

When Anna wanted to get a Facebook page, she had to lie about her age, because her birth-date was too far back. Anna was born in 1900, and the earliest date for a Facebook profile is 1905.

Anna’s interest in technology began when a Verizon rep sold a cell phone to her 85-year-old son — since then, he’s been teaching her how to use the internet.
