The Queen's Facebook, page, 'The British Monarchy' page has drawn nearly 200,000 visitors since its launch on Monday.
Royalists as well as republicans have logged on to the social networking site to view images, videos and news about the British monarchy.
The page offers information about royal events, visits and ceremonies that can be searched on a UK map and also features the royal events, visits and ceremonies, all searchable on a UK map and also features the Court Circular - the authoritative record of the previous day's official royal engagements.
The move comes after the introduction of the monarchy's Flickr account earlier this year. The monarchy also joined Twitter in 2009, where it has over 70,000 followers, and established a Royal Channel on YouTube in 2007, which features upward of 200 videos.
According to Sophy Silver, head of communications at Facebook, the content the monarchy has been putting up is great for a Facebook page and it was good for them to be getting the information there. When they put photos on the site, they form part of the social graph.
According to a spokesman for Buckingham Palace, it was part of the monarchy's ongoing strategy to adopt social networking as a way of engaging people with what the Royal Family was doing. He added that the important thing about Facebook was its international reach, with the Queen being the Queen of 16 countries and head of the Commonwealth."
