The oldest registered Facebook user celebrated her 106th birthday Wednesday.

According to ABC News, Edythe Kirchmaier's friends signed her up for the free social media site last year on her 105th birthday.

Upon first signing up for Facebook, Kirchmaier was unable to enter her 1908 birth year. It took the Web site's engineers a month to verify her age and repair the glitch.

Currently Kirchmaier has more than 46,000 followers on her Facebook page, which on Wednesday was filled with hundreds of birthday messages and wishes.

Kirchmaier, who lives in California, is the state's oldest licensed driver and the oldest living graduate of the University of Chicago.
