Pope Francis joins Instagram! Perhaps the pontiff, 79, was fascinated by the founder of Instagram Kevin Systrom, when the two met at the Vatican last month.
Pope Francis, 79, said he shared his first post on Instagram which quickly began accumulating followers.
For a guy who said that he does not know how to operate a computer, Pope Francis did not refrain from embracing technology. In January, he held separate meetings with the ‘Alphabet’ Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt and CEO of, Apple Tim Cook.
Google+ hangout last year put the Pope in front of a webcam and allows it to respond to children’s issues around the world. The Pope also tweets and was happy to indulge the many visitors to the Vatican on selfie requests.
It is not clear whether the pope is actually the one sending his dispatches of social media, we hope that he had heard the latest news on Instagram.
