Anna Stoehr, one of the oldest living people in the world at age 114 who lied about her age so she could get a Facebook page, has died in Minnesota, US.

She lied about her actual age as the earliest birth year listed on Facebook to create a new profile is 1905.

Stoehr decided to fudge her age by 15 years and submitted her age as 99 to get through.

Born Oct 15, 1900, Stoehr spent the eve of her birthday in October this year learning how to navigate her brand new iPad, USA Today reported.

For her social media exposure, she was thankful to a Verizon sales representative who befriended her to teach her how to e-mail and Google.

Stoehr used iPad to get connected with family members and friends on the social networking site, the report added.
