Facebook's oldest user title has been the bone of contention between two centenarians lately.

Florence Detlor, 101, was said to be Facebook's oldest user by Mark Zuckerberg and was even given a personal tour of the company, yet she may not in fact be the oldest person on Facebook.

Detlor is being challenged for the title by Maria "Mary" Colunia Segura-Metzgar, who just turned 105 this week and has an account with 68 friends, said Yahoo News.

Segura-Metzgar was helped by her grandson Anthony Segura to joining Facebook.

Segura said that when he set up her account he couldn't enter her age as Facebook dates didn't go that far back.

She had to make her 101, instead of 104.

"I tried to sign her up on Facebook a few months ago but it wouldn't accept her birth date," Segura, 60, told ABC News.

"Then I tried again and just put in 101 and it accepted it for the timeline, even though she was 104. Now on Facebook it says she's 102 when, in reality, she's 105," he added.

He said that he contacted Facebook about the issue but they have not returned his calls, reported The Inquisitr.

Segura-Metzgar has been twice widowed and is the mother of four, said Yahoo News.
