This is my Nana Mary Rose Buffini. She’s 97 and I was trying to teach her about selfies and how you post a pic on fb and people can like it etc.. I said I’ll post this and see how many likes she can get for being so old haha. She said she won’t get any bless her. Please like so I can show her how special she really is!! Xx

Oh, they showed her. The current amount of likes is 302,894, with over 5,000 shares and hundreds of comments from all over the world since it was posted last night.

People began sharing how far Mary Rose’s selfie had traveled.
