When you look at the hashtag #tbt, or "Throwback Thursday," on Instagram, it's mainly young users who use it as an opportunity to share photos of their even younger selves.

Today the Vatican got in on the #tbt action with an adorable photo of Pope Francis back when he was still Jorge Mario Bergoglio, showing just how social media-savvy it is.

This isn't Pope Francis' first demonstration of how young he is at heart. Last year, he became the first pope ever to take part in a selfie. He did it again yesterday too!

Happy Thursday, everyone!
