(Scroll down for video) An elderly woman was caught lying about her age on Facebook in order to gain access to the social media site.

The incident began when 113-year-old Anna Stoehr of Minnesota, created her Facebook page.

Stoehr did what many teens do bypass Facebook’s age requirement, she lied. She wrote on her profile that she is 99 years old, after her real age was returned as invalid.

When Stoehr was born near Manning, Iowa, her family did not have a phone, electric lights or cars. However, now she is enjoying herself with her new iPad.

Stoehr, who lives in a retirement community, wrote a letter to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, using an old typewriter about the social media site’s age requirements.
