Queen's Facebook debut nets 130,000 fans

More than 130,000 fans have "liked" Queen Elizabeth II on Facebook since she joined the popular social network yesterday.

The British Golden Goose Sale monarchy's Facebook page does not allow users to "friend" the Queen or to send her messages, but offers updates on royal news and diary events.

In just a few hours after the page went live, 130,000 people had clicked to signal they liked it, meaning they will receive updates on the Royal family's activities in their Facebook news feeds.

The page does not display personal details such as the Queen's relationship status, interests or political views.

Britain's Royal family prides itself on keeping up to date with new technologies.

In 2008, the Queen uploaded a video to YouTube during a visit to Google's London offices.

In 2009 a British monarchy Twitter account was launched and a royal Flickr account was created this year.

Facebook was launched in 2004 and now has more than 500 million active users around the world.
