The 25 most popular destinations for Facebook check-ins in 2013
Places people want to brag about the most
Theme parks, sports stadiums, and city squares are among the most popular destinations that people checked into on Facebook in 2013.
As part of its annual review, Facebook has listed the 25 places that users most frequently check into around the world. The list includes the top checked in places, excluding transportation hubs, in 25 of the countries with the most active Facebook users in 2013.
A Facebook blog post says it looked at which places generated the most check-ins in 2013 and used the data to create global and country-level rankings.
Travel is big business for the global social network, which confirmed that travel continues to be the second most talked-about life event on Facebook after relationship updates.
Facebook released a similar list last year on the top 10 checked into place by country.
The 2013 list includes four Disney theme parks in California, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Paris; three sports arenas in Vancouver, Sweden and Melbourne and a steakhouse in Buenos Aires.
