The Pontiff and Social networking tools
Web surfers can now send or receive virtual postcards of Pope Benedict XVI from their Facebook friends through a new Facebook application. The Vatican is taking new, technologically savvy steps to bring its message to social networking sites and smartphones. Also available on the Pope2You portal is an application for iPhone and iPod Touch that gives surfers video and audio news on the pope's trips and speeches, as well as on Catholic events worldwide. As early as January, Pope Benedict got his own YouTube channel, this is now linked to the portal.
