“Does the Queen have Facebook?” Yes she does. Already on Twitter, YouTube and Flickr, Britain’s Royal Family now has a presence on Facebook after launching yesterday morning. Facebook.com/TheBritishMonarchy has videos, photos and the Court Circular, the 200-year-old authoritative record of engagements also on Buckingham Palace’s website. I.e. a list of wastes of tax payer’s money. Joke.
The Royal Facebook does not have a personal profile, so users cannot ask the royals to be their Facebook “friend”; instead they can click to “like” the page as over 61,000 people already have.
Whether you’re a fan of the Monarchy or not it’s still pretty cool that high-profile people have an ‘internet presence’ though it’s a shame you can’t poke her.
