Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg posted a photo of Florence Detlor, Facebook's oldest registered user, on Monday.

The world's oldest woman may have turned 116 on Monday, but she did not get to visit Facebook's headquarters on her birthday. But 101-year-old Florence Detlor, the social network's oldest registered user, did.

Facebook's chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg posted a photo which shows Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Detlor and Sandberg at what appears to be Facebook's headquarters.

"Honored to meet Florence Detlor, who at 101 years old is the oldest registered Facebook user," Sandberg wrote on her own Facebook page Monday. "Thank you for visiting us Florence!"

We've asked the folks at Facebook for more info about Detlor's visit and will update when we hear back.
