According to USA Today, over 60 million photos are shared each day through Instagram. Pretty amazing, right?
Besides being a way to share photos, the Instagram app also geotags them using your smartphone’s GPS. USA Today writes that “Using Instagram’s geotagging lets users create a map of their travels photo by photo – and provides Instagram with data about their community’s favorite destinations to photograph”.
Creating a map of your travels through photos sounds pretty neat but the fact that Instagram keeps data and can see where your photos were taken as a bit invasive to some. (I personally wouldn’t really care.)
I’m guessing for those not comfortable about the geotagging feature, it could just be shut off.
I came across an article from USA Today Travel earlier in the month about Instagram’s Top 10 Most Geotagged Destinations of 2014.
Here are the top 10:
- Disneyland: Anaheim, California
- Dodger Stadium: Los Angeles, California
- Times Square: New York, NY
- Siam Paragon: Bangkok, Thailand
- Gorky Park: Moscow, Russia
- Musee du Louvre: Paris, France
- Red Square: Moscow, Russia
- Madison Square Garden: New York, NY
- Yankee Stadium: New York, NY
- The Dubai Mall: Dubai, UAE
If I had to guess what the most tagged destinations on Instagram would be, I’d have a difficult time picking but would probably choose Times Square.
What would you expect to be the most Instagrammed destination in 2014?
