Francis also has signed up for Instagram. The Pope's account on the social network site will be launched on Saturday, March 19. The launch will coincide with the feast of St. Joseph and the profile will bear the name "Franciscus.”

Instagram has more than 400 million users and shares photos and videos with a community of followers. Kevin Systrom, president and one of the founders of the company, visited Francis a few days ago in Rome.

It will not be the first time that the Vatican is using Instagram. The news portal News.va has had an account for three years. It has followed Francis' entire pontificate sharing his photos and messages.

The Vatican is revamping the way they communicate. At the end of 2012, they opened the Twitter account @Pontifex in nine languages, from which Benedict XVI sent several messages.
