Earlier, in late February, the Pope met with the CEO and co-founder of Instagram Kevin Sistermom with whom he discussed the subject of uniting people of different cultures in a social network.
Kevin SISTROM, meanwhile, said in his microblog that the account of the Pope in Instagram can bring a lot of good people: “Welcome to Instagram, Pope Francis! Your posts about humility, compassion and mercy are very important to us.”
While the British newspaper Guardian writes that Francis had joined the microblogging service on the day of the third anniversary of his inauguration. The action of the Pope can be called part of the strategy of the Vatican city to attract young people.
By the way, on account of the Pope on Twitter signed 8,92 million users. There is a possibility that the activity in Instagram due to the popularity of this social network will attract even more people.
