Sophie Ferrara, called Nana Sophie, is celebrating her 102nd birthday on Saturday, and she has already smashed that number.

In fact, her goal for marking year 102 of her life is to get to 5,000 friends. The Chesapeake City, Md. resident and former employee of New York Telephone already has more than 2,500 friends.

She's even throwing a birthday party, to which all of her Facebook friends are invited.
