Unexpected rating: the most popular cities for vacation according to social networks are named
Millions of tourists travel to the world's most popular cities every year. And the rating of the most attractive is usually based on the number of tourists.
However, a ranking of the world's most popular tourist cities has finally appeared, based not on the number of tourists but on social media posts, according to a Timeout article.
When it came to compiling the ranking, Titan Travel paid attention to the number of TikTok views and Instagram posts, as well as the number of changes in Google search traffic over the past three years.
At the same time, critics of Titan Travel's scoring system point out that this method of counting is not reliable in measuring the popularity of tourist cities. Moreover, representations of destinations on platforms such as Instagram and TikTok are often not accurate or realistic.
