Facebook’s Top 20 Checked-In Places of 2015

Were these the most-visited places, the ones with the best wi-fi/cell phone coverage, or just the ones people wanted to brag about the most? Social media giant Facebook recently released their list of the top 20 places the site’s users checked in to in 2015, and it’s a pretty diverse list:

  1. Disney Properties
  2. Universal Studios Properties
  3. Times Square, New York City
  4. Eiffel Tower
  5. Niagara Falls
  6. Siam Paragon
  7. Grand Canyon National Park
  8. Yosemite National Park
  9. The Louvre
  10. Central Park
  11. Beto Carrero World
  12. Warner Bros. Studio Tour London
  13. Gardens by the Bay
  14. Marina Bay Sands
  15. Ibirapuera Park
  16. Hollywood Walk of Fame
  17. Madison Square Park
  18. Santa Monica Pier
  19. Camp Nou
  20. Expo Milano 2015

We’re not surprised by all of the check-ins at commercial places like Disney and Siam Paragon (Thailand’s largest mall), but didn’t expect to see so many natural wonders, like the Grand Canyon on there. Are most people really on Facebook while they’re out enjoying nature?

Did you check in at any of these places in 2015?
