The Most Social Landmarks Around the Globe
          
 
This week Facebook released some interesting statistics on the most social landmarks around the globe, in the top 25 cities, according to their check-in data:

To discover the top landmarks around the globe, Facebook aggregated check-ins via its site and third-party apps using the Facebook API. The data dates back to August 2010 when check-ins were first launched.

Some of the interesting facts Facebook uncovered related to check-ins via the site were that sports stadiums and arenas were some of the most popular venues in the world (7 of the number-1-ranked landmarks across the top 25 most social cities were stadiums or arenas); public areas including squares, avenues and parks were second on the list of the most popular check-in destinations (6 out of 25); and cities with warmer climates had more outdoor check-ins than their colder counterparts.

We've reproduced the top 25 here - how many have you checked into? Which would you most like to visit?
