Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world that, with its 300 million active users, provides a global, visual snapshot of the lives of people from many walks of life.
One thing that makes Instagram so interesting is its use of hash tags in photos that usually tell a story, in one word or by the use of a catchy phrase, about the image to which its attached. Another feature of Instagram is its use of geotagging, which is information that can inform you of where the image was taken.
Researchers have analysed these two specific features to find out where are the sexiest places in the world. They tracked the hashtag ‘sexy’, i.e. #sexy – and cross-referenced it with the location data of any images. Sounds really scientific, right? Well, here’s what they found.
