The longest timeline: Facebook's oldest user visits the firm's HQ (and even gets a photo with Mark Zuckerberg)

Social networking is often seen as a pastime for the younger generation.
However, Facebook today revealed its oldest user - and even invited her for a look around the firm's Silicon Valley HQ.

Florence Detlor, from nearby Menlo Park, is 101 years old, and boasts 653 friends on the site.
According to Facebook, she has the distinction of being the service’s oldest user.

August 27th, she met Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sherly Sandberg.
Sandberg posted the above picture on her Timeline early Monday, along with the caption: 'Honored to meet Florence Detlor, who at 101 years old is the oldest registered Facebook user.
'Thank you for visiting us Florence!'

There are 955 million active users on Facebook, and the firm says the fastest-growing demographic on the service, for at least the last two years, has been women over 55.
The photo has garnered more than 5,000 Likes — and comments from users with 102 and 103-year-old grandparents.
According to her profile, Florence graduated from Occidental College in 1932.
She lives in Menlo Park, where Facebook is based, and is 'looking for a good book to read.'
She joined Facebook three years ago, in August 2009.
