The Vatican is about to unveil a Facebook page for Pope Francis, as part of its strategy to expand the Catholic Church’s presence on social media, according to reports yesterday.

The pope already has nine different-language profiles on Twitter, attracting more than 12 million followers.

His predecessor, Benedict XVI, opened the accounts in December 2012.

“Francis will soon have his very own profile on the world’s favourite social network.

“ The Vatican is just working on some final technical aspects before the Pope’s Facebook page is made visible to the public,” specialised website Vatican Insider said.

The Vatican was not immediately available for comment.

The report added that IT experts are working to prevent offensive or inappropriate messages appearing on the pope’s Facebook page before it is opened to the public.

“Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.
