A 103-year-old Welsh woman logs onto Facebook regularly, and get this, she does so from an iPad!

TIME might have just named Facebook CEO, 26-year-old Mark Zuckerberg, the Person of the Year, but the social networking site isn’t just for the young. Just ask Lillian Lowe of Wales.

The 103-year-old is the unofficial oldest person on Facebook. She currently has 34 friends, including her seven grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Her grandson was kind enough to loan her his iPad to access the site, which she does about twice a week. But it’s not just Facebook that has caught her eye. Remarking about her long life and the wonders of technology that she has seen, Lowe told the Daily Mail, “I think virtually everything has been invented during my time. What I particularly like now is this Google Earth.”
