Veteran British singer SIR Cliff Richard has joined Facebook.com after years of resisting - so he can keep in touch with his fans.
The Mistletoe and Wine hitmaker is embracing the social-networking site as a means of communicating with his devoted following, and admits he's surprised by how many people are logged on.
Speaking to fans in a video from his Barbados home, he says, "I didn't think I needed a Facebook page because I didn't think any of you used computers.
"I'm absolutely amazed by how many of you do. I'm really new to this sort of thing, so don't expect too much from me."
