104-Year-Old Woman Too Old For Facebook
Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT
Facebook forced a 104-years-old Michigan woman to lie about her age to get an account.
Marguerite Joseph is legally blind and is hard of hearing. But each day her granddaughter, Gail Marlow, reads and responds to all of her grandma's Facebook messages to keep her connected to family and friends across the country.
When her granddaughter set up the account a couple of year ago, 1908 as her birth year was not an option. She's been forced to be 99 online for years.
Every time Gail tried to change the settings to the right age, Facebook always came back with the same message. The words unknown error popped up. And it reverted back to 99 years old.
"I would like to say she's 104 years old on Facebook," Marlow said. "And on April 19, she's going to be 105."
And that's a number that motivated Gail to go straight to the top. She sent message after message to Mark Zuckerberg himself. But after four years of trying, the age 104 is still too much for even Facebook to compute.
But no matter what age her profile says you can't put a number of the time Marguerite and Gail spend together.
"It's an opportunity to share my grandmother's amazing life and her journey through life, to share it with other people. So they can see here are this wonderful woman and the incredible things that she does," Marlow said.
Stories about Marguerite finally got the attention of Facebook. Spokesman Andrew Noyes said Facebook was aware of the issue.
"We are working on a fix for this and we apologize for the inconvenience," he said.
