Some headlines are just too good not to re-post:
Queen joins Facebook, but you can’t be her friend or poke her (UK Metro)
The Socialite Network: UK’s Queen joins Facebook (Associated Press, London)
Queen Elizabeth on Facebook, not looking for friends (Montreal Gazette)
What do you know? Today Buckingham Palace is to launch a Facebook account for The British Monarchy, which will feature news, photos, videos and daily updates about the activities of Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the Royal Family.
We don’t know what kind of settings are available uniquely to Her Majesty but it has been made clear she’ll be protected from common pokes, Friend requests and any direct contact other than a distant “like.”
I’m not one of the Royal Family’s 70,000 followers on Twitter, so I don’t know what kind of updates are already tweeting out of the palace on a regular basis.
Will we now know what kind of tea she’s sipping or what’s in her porridge? For whom she’s voting on Britain’s Got Talent? How many animals she’s feeding in FarmVille? What she really thinks of Kate Middleton?
Have you liked the Queen today?
