Pope Francis has refused to join Facebook and has decided to stick with Twitter.

According to Quartz, Facebook officials had visited the Vatican to encourage the Pope to join the social-networking site but the archbishop in charge of social media for the Vatican, Claudio Maria Celli revealed that the current head of the Catholic Church has declined because there are too many opportunities for critics to post profane comments, CBS News reported.

The Pope had joined Twitter as @Pontifex, where Vatican officials tweet at least once daily in nine languages, and has 4 million followers.
