Never Too Old For Facebook

That’s A Mighty Long Profile

A British great-grandmother has become the oldest person on Facebook. 102-year-old Ivy Bean’s online profile was set up by staff at the care home where she lives. The former mill worker, from West Yorkshire, now uses it to keep in touch with friends and family but said, "At 102 I have a lot to put on about myself".

FOOTNOTE: Nook and granny.

I see some people are getting this internet thing figured out no matter what age they are. I know some who are maybe a little older than me that aren't ready for Y1K.

And Bart, I am up at 3AM during the week getting ready for work. But I'm sure that David has scheduled this post to go up at 4AM, as he has one go up everyday at this time, and there have been times that I have had email exchanges with him past midnight his time.

Wow that's amazing and I thought Bob's Mum was a rarity using the internet at 94!

I did have a facebook account, but got fed up of the nudges and wall things. when I closed my account I was asked why and was given a number of choices. I chose I didn't find it useful. Facebook told me I needed more friends.

I think blogging beats facebook hands down. Debs x
