Facebook's Eldest User is 103 years Old with a great Business lesson

Personally I love stories like this. A grandma, using Facebook to stay in touch with her grand kids. It teaches a great business lesson.

Grandma does what I recommend for all businesses, entrepreneurs, coaches, trainers, heck you.

MEET your people, clients, on their terms.

Mature adults are driving the most recent growth in Facebook’s membership, so it makes perfect sense that even the eldest are joining the site. The oldest user appears to be 103-year-old Lillian Lowe of Tenby England.

She became the eldest on Facebook after the previous record oldest member died in July at age 104. Said individual, Ivy Bean, also hailed from England, interestingly enough.

The 103-year-old Lowe told United Press International that she has 34 friends on Facebook, including seven grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. She accesses the site on her iPad, and enthuses:

I love it — it’s very exciting. It’s a wonderful way of finding out about things. I recommend it for any grandparents to keep in touch with family.

Apparently, Facebook spokespeople haven’t confirmed whether Lowe is in fact the eldest. But the way she uses the site appears to be catching on, at least based on what I see happening among my own friends there. Grandparents have been figuring out that their grandkids are logging on daily, or almost that frequently.

Readers, have you seen anyone older than 103 years on Facebook? Who’s the oldest person on your friend list?
