- A picture labeled the Pope's first selfie fooled a few folks
- His first real selfie was in August 2013
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
Let's give the Pope some credit -- he's posted many selfies before. He posed for his first selfie
with Italian pilgrims at St. Peter's Basilica in August 2013.
We'll be waiting for the next papal portrait, but this time, on the official Vatican Instagram account
