In a statement released on Thursday, the Pope stated that internet and social media are making people across the world 'increasingly interdependent''.

"The internet, in particular, offers immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity. This is something truly good, a gift from God.
At the same time, though, all those tweets and texts and comment streams can cause people to 'lose our bearings.'"

There's a tinge of irony to the Pope's comments, considering that his own soaring popularity can be partially traced to the internet and social media. According to a study  released in November, Pope Francis was the most talked about person online last year.
