Pope Francis has a keen interest in technology, commenting regularly on social media. On the Pope
joining Instagram, Mark Zuckerberg welcomed him, commenting: “No matter what faith you
practice, we can all be inspired by Pope Francis’s humility and compassion. I’m looking forward to
following the Pope – and watching him continue sharing his message of mercy, equality and justice
with the world”. In Amoris Laetitia, Pope Francis explained that "In our own day, dominated by
stress and rapid technological advances, one of the most important tasks of families is to provide an
education in hope".
