and Mark Gormley
have a new YouTube competitor: Pope Benedict XVI. The Associated Press
has reported that the Vatican has launched its own YouTube channel
"The Vatican said that with the YouTube channel, it hoped to broaden and unite the pontiff's audience -- an estimated 1.4 billion people are online worldwide -- while giving the Holy See better control over the pope's Internet image."
It's kind of cool that the Internet and YouTube have gotten so big that religions are using them to communicate with their followers. It's also surprising (in a good way) that the Vatican is embracing modern technology.
Have you checked out The Vatican channel? If so, what do you think?
