Former Pope gets Facebook page to build community ahead of beatification

Facebook, Tech Digest news


Because Facebook isn’t just about sharing information – it creates community, discussion and the sharing of ideas. At least this is how the Vatican sees the social networking site, as it has chosen to set up a Facebook page for former Pope John Paul II.

The former pope will be beatified later this year, on 1st May. Beatification is a blessing from the Vatican, and a crucial step on the way to making the pontiff a saint. The Vatican has already accredited a miracle to John Paul II: The curing of a nun with Parkinson’s Disease.

Pope John Paul II died in 2005 after having been pope for nearly 27 years.
