Just recently, the folk at Facebook wrote an article about the world's most popular social landmarks. The basis of the article was formed around Facebook check-ins, where the occurred, and the locations that were frequented the most in the major cities around the world.
From the data collected, the most popular places, unsurprisingly, were shopping centres and sporting arenas.
For our great city of Melbourne, the top five social landmarks, in order, were:
- Crown Casino
- Chadstone Shopping Centre
- Docklands Stadium (One can only assume this means Etihad Stadium)
- Rod Laver Arena and;
- St. Kilda Beach
Here is the City breakdown from Facebook.
