Los Angeles - Ryan Reynolds has joined Facebook and Instagram.

The 38-year-old actor - who joined Twitter back in November - has now set up official accounts on the other two social networking sites, joking he is "fashionably 12 years late" in creating a Facebook page.

In his first post on the account - which has already racked up more than 670 000 fans - he posted a snap of himself as a teenager on the set of teen drama Fifteen, alongside which he wrote: "Nice to be on Facebook. It's always good to be fashionably 12 years late."

The Green Lantern star - who has four-month-old daughter James with his wife, 27-year-old Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively - has also shared his first snap on his Instagram account.

Posting a still from his new Marvel film Deadpool, in which he is in mid-air, he wrote: 'Stuck the landing. With my mouth."

Stuck the landing. With my mouth.

However, Ryan's 100 000 person following on the site is modest compared to Blake, who has racked up 2.7 million followers since joining Instagram in July last year.

Fans will be hoping to see more of the hunk's trademark wit on his new accounts, having joked about his mother on Twitter on Mother's Day with a quirky post about her knowledge of Israeli self defence. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
