The world's top 20 most Instagrammed landmarks
Going on holiday is as much about the social media brag as it is the much-needed rest and relaxation. So if you're travelling for the Likes, here's a tip: landmarks get all the love on the social.
You can't visit Dubai without taking a snap of Burj Khalifa (we live here and not even we can resist), just like you can't go to New York without snapping a shot of you cheesing in Times Square. The downside of this of course is that no matter what cool angle you get for your post, you are not the first... or the hundreth... or the 10,000th person to post a landmark snap.
In fact, Sony Mobile collaborated with OnePoll to reveal the 20 most photographed and shared (via social network) landmarks. The Japanese tech giant found that more than half of those 20 landmarks are captured from the same three angles which are quite frankly yawn-inducing and not compelling enough for your audience to hit that “Like” button.
FYI, the study also showed that 52 percent of people admitted that they would be more likely to ‘like’ a picture if it was something that they had not seen before.
According to Sony’s research, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa is not only the most photographed location in the UAE, it’s also the most photographed in the Asia. Ranking fifth overall, the world’s tallest building has popped up 1,446,682 times on Instagram and is snapped more than the Buckingham Palace.
