A new Vatican website provides a portal for the pope's Facebook account, Wiki pages, iPhones or iPods, and a YouTube account.

"Questo canale offre una copertura informativa delle principali attività del Santo Padre Benedetto XVI e degli avvenimenti vaticani più rilevanti," we are told, which pretty much sums it all up.
