It appears that 104-year-old Marguerite Joseph was forced to lie about her age on Facebook because FB profiles were designed to go up to only 99 years of age! Facebook is apologising to the family, friends and to the woman who had to lie about her age on this networking site.

The woman from Michigan, who is legally blind and has a slight problem in hearing, has her facebook messages answered by her granddaughter Gail Marlow. Gail said that when she tried inputting her grandmother's  birth year as 1908, Facebook forcefully changed it to 1928, keeping Marguerite at 99 years of age; online, anyway.

 

A Facebook’s representative said that the problem on the pre-1910 birth dates is being tackled by Facebook.
