Per my heads up two days ago here (and 4 days ago on Twitter & FaceBook) the Vatican has set up a FaceBook account for John Paul II (#265) — essentially to capitalize on the enormous global interest that the pope’s beatification, on May 1, 2011, will generate.
Click on the screen shot below to access the John Paul II FaceBook account (and you do not have to be a FaceBook member to read the page).
There are over 25.500 people who have already expressed that they ‘like’ this page. There is also a section as to what other FaceBook accounts are liked by ‘John Paul II.’ The Vatican may want to do some work on that. Right now it comes as being somewhat egotistical. From what I see the pope only appears to like accounts about himself!
