    Checking in to a glamorous destination on Facebook is the preferred way to brag to friends and family online, normally followed up by a selfie - the photo-taking phenomenon that has dominated 2013.

    And it seems that tagging yourself at a certain location has become so popular, it is possible to discover travel trends by using the data.

    Facebook has unveiled the most popular places around the world where users have 'checked in' and it certainly makes for interesting reading. It is unsurprising that top tourist locations are among the most checked into places on Facebook, as travel tends to dominate conversation on the social networking site.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
