Facebook has almost one billion users which constitutes 14% of the world’s population, and thus they probably know a thing or two about what the world likes to do, the places we frequent and so on.
The social networking site has released a list of the most “social” landmarks in the world or places where the maximum number of Facebook check-ins have happened since August 2010.

According to the report, Sports stadium and public areas like parks were found to be the most “social” places as per the data.
Amusement parks like Johannesburg’s Gold Reef City, Moscow’s Gorky Park, Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens and Seoul’s Lotte World were among the top 10 places to check-in.
Cities with warmer climates had more check-ins to outdoors spots, like St. Kilda Beach in Melbourne and the Wynyard Quarter wharf in Auckland, while colder climes had more activity in concert halls or bars. Six of Moscow’s 10 most popular slots belong to bars and clubs.
Facebook anonymously aggregated all check-in data from the following cities, excluding transportation hubs such as airports, train stations, and bus stations:
- Auckland, New Zealand
- Barcelona, Spain
- Buenos Aires, Argentina
- Copenhagen, Denmark
- Delhi, India
- Los Angeles
- Melbourne, Australia
- Mexico City
- New York
- San Francisco
- Sao Paulo
- Seoul, South Korea
Within individual cities, there were also some interesting comparisons. In New York, the American Museum of Natural History garnered more check-ins than its neighbor across Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Rome’s Spanish Steps is one the city’s most social spots, followed by the Trevi Fountain, just 10 minutes away.
