Gail Marlow said her grandmother, Marguerite Joseph, 104, of Grosse Pointe Shores, registered for Facebook two years ago and the furthest date back the social networking site would let her use was 1928, WDIV-TV, Detroit, reported Thursday.
Marlow, who reads and responds to the Facebook messages on her grandmother's behalf, said the woman is legally blind and hard of hearing.
Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes said the company was unaware of the issue before learning of Joseph's difficulty.
"We are working on a fix for this and we apologize for the inconvenience," he said.
