- A picture labeled the Pope's first selfie fooled a few folks
- His first real selfie was in August 2013
(CNN)The Internet exploded Monday morning when some people thought Pope Francis took his first selfie -- the problem was, it wasn't true.
It wasn't his first selfie -- or even a selfie at all.
The picture came from a screen grab of a video chat he hosted in September 2014.
The image of the overjoyed Pontiff, posted on Instagram by unofficial Vatican account, appeared with the caption "First #selfie." The photo received more than 9,000 likes in a matter of hours on Monday.
Several news outlets fell prey to non-selfie snafu, including New York Daily News, Yahoo News and CNN.
