Pope give his blessing to Twitter, but warns against writing things just to be popular


Well, nothing like getting the seal of approval from God’s representative on earth. And now Twitter, Facebook and other social networks have got the get-go from the Pope.

Last week – proclamation called “Truth, proclamation and authenticity of life in the digital age” The Pope encouraged Catholics to use the internet to spread the good word – establish relationships and build fellowship.

However he did warn of the hidden dangers of social networking for good Catholics – and the rest of us, warning against “creating false online profiles out of vanity or diluting the Christian message to achieve popularity”. He may have been alerted to the dangers of fake online profiles by the fake Facebook page for him set up – see screengrab above.

The Vatican are apparently also releasing a style guide for Catholic bloggers too… we look forward to that.
