British Royal Family joins Facebook

London: You can now catch up with the British Monarchy on social networking website Facebook.

The Royal Family members, who are already regular users of micro-blogging site Twitter and video-sharing site YouTube, have now set up their own Facebook page.

The British Monarchy page features pictures, news videos and speeches from Queen Elizabeth II, king-in-waiting Prince Charles and his sons, Princes William and Harry, apart from other Royals.

In fact, its creation is a collaboration between the Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and the Royal Collection.

Buckingham Palace has said that it’s not a personal profile page, but users can “like" the service and receive updates on their news feed. The page will also feature the Court Circular, recording Queen’s previous day’s engagements.

The Royal Family’s launch of the Facebook page follows the introduction of the Monarchy’s Twitter account in 2009.

Facebook has become a global Internet phenomenon since it was started by Harvard undergraduate Mark Zuckerberg in 2004.
