Facebook Determines World’s Most Social Landmarks

Posted by No Comment

Facebook recently released a list of the top 25 ‘most social’ landmarks in the world.

The ‘social-ness’ of a place was determined by how often people ‘checked-in’ there (on Facebook) and how often it was mentioned on the social news feed.

Top of the list was the Unicenter, a shopping mall in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Also high up on the list was the Tokyo Dome, the Staples Center (Los Angeles, USA), the Avenue des Champs-Élysée (Paris, France) and Lotte World (Seoul, South Korea).

The major surprise on the list? A TGI Friday’s restaurant in Oslo, Norway.
