However, since being outed as the oldest Facebook user, the centenarian who lives in Tenby, has received a deluge of Facebook friend requests from people around the world. The BBC reports she has had 999 friend requests already.

Facebook, which now has over 500 million users, sees Ms Lowe around two times a week.

The tech-aware great-gran also thanked people for their messages.
