Washington: Facebook's oldest registered user, who will turn 107 in January 2015, earned the distinction when her friends at the medical aid charity signed her up for an account on her 105th birthday.

Santa Barbara resident Edythe Kirchmaier , who was born in 1908- that's 49 years before the Internet was invented, now has nearly 55,000 followers on her Facebook page, ABC News reported.

Kirchmaier said she embraces social media because it allows her to check in daily with friends and family. She's also used her status to raise awareness for causes she believes in, such as Direct Relief.

The centenarian says she cherishes her Facebook relationships, but still believes in the power of the pen. The only other social app she uses is 'Words With Friends.'
