I've shared quite a few Facebook success stories with you before. From heart-warming reunions to daring rescues, it's safe to say that Facebook is more than just a tool for connecting you with your friends and family. Lois Shelton, from Jefferson City, Tennessee, can certainly attest to that.

75-year-old Shelton was alone in her home when she took a tumble down the stairs in her kitchen.

My arm, I don't know what happened, but I couldn't lift my arm," she recalled. ... I knew I would've been laying on this floor for at least two weeks before anybody found me.

That's when she sprung into action. She could not get to her phone, but her computer was within reach. That's when she crawled over to her computer, grabbed the keyboard and was able to post to Facebook - a post that saved her life.
