Pope Benedict XVI Use Facebook Page As Media To Draw On To The Youth

Saturday, May 23, 2009

Pope Benedict Facebook PagePope Benedict XVI, using the Facebook social network to run the religious mission. Through Facebook as the media, followed by hundreds of millions of people from all over the world, Pope invites the young Catholic servant to return to the church.

New Vatican Website www.pope2you.net offers a service called 'The Pope meets you on Facebook'. This service allows people to access the Pope Benedict XVI's speeches, greetings and messages through iPhone or Ipod.

This is a new pattern of communication that is run by Vatican.

Monsignor Paul Tighe, secretary of the Vatican’s Social Communications department said, "We recognize that a church that does not communicate ceases to be a church", "Many young people today are not turning to traditional media like newspapers and magazines any more for information and entertainment. They are looking to a different media culture, and this is our effort to ensure that the Church is present in that communications culture."

However, Pope's Facebook is not the same as the facebook service used by the public. You will not receive a 'friend request' from the Pope or write in his wall.
