Facebook's computer systems 'targeted'

Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan: Facebook is apologising for a problem that makes a 104-year-old Michigan woman lie about her age on the social media website.

Marguerite Joseph's granddaughter says Facebook won't let Joseph list her real age.

Gail Marlow says when she tries inputting her grandmother's birth year as 1908, Facebook changes it to 1928. So for the past two years, the Grosse Pointe Shores centenarian has remained 99 - online, anyway.

Marlow tells WDIV-TV she'd "love to see" Joseph's real age posted and chalks it up to "a glitch in the system."



Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes told The Associated Press on Wednesday that it's working to fix a problem limiting used of pre-1910 birthdates.
