Like many people, Marguerite Joseph of Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan, lies about her age online. The difference is it’s not her fault. When Joseph signed up for Facebook two years ago the website wouldn’t let her input her birth year as 1908 and kept changing it to 1928. So for the past two years the 104-year-old is listed on her Facebook profile as being only 99. Her granddaughter says it’s “a glitch in the system.” Facebook has had no comment. Neither has Match.com or eHarmony, who both say if they published her correct age she’d be the first person on their sites to ever do so.
