Pope Francis in his 5 months as the head of the Roman Catholic Church has proved to be revolutionary from his rigid predecessors in many ways.
The Argentine pontiff took his social media presence to the next level by setting up an Instagram account.
Having more than 3 million followers on Twitter where he uses the handle @Pontifex and tweets in English, Pope Francis also has handles in other world languages with many followers on those profiles too.
The Vatican also has an Instagram account with more than 1,500 followers. Posts on the feed include shots of the Vatican buildings and crowds waiting to see the Pope.
Since the Pope joined Instagram he has more than 6, 000 followers and counting.
On the profile, Pope Francis has shared some pictures of him meeting crowds of faithful, World Youth Day in Brazil and his meeting with ex-Pope Benedict XVI.
Social media seems to be something Pope Francis has understood and is doing his best to use all the avenues possible to reach out to the faithful around the world especially the youth.
Maria D'Souza, 23, a teacher said, "I'm really happy to see the Pope on Instagram, I really love his tweets and now I can see pictures of him."
Gary Fernandes, 18, a student said, "The Pope joing Instagram is really nice, now even though I'm in India I can see him and what he does."
John D'Sa, 40, an architect said, "I am not that active on Instagram, but with the Pope joining it I think many young people will benefit."
