Rogers Arena Is Canada's Top Check-In Spot On Facebook

December, the time of year we begin looking back at all the relevant events, happenings, and interesting statistics that took place during the year. Today however, we look at the top 25 destinations for check-ins on Facebook during 2013.

Among popular attractions, it’s arenas/stadiums, theme parks, and super popular tourist destinations that people “check-in” to most on Facebook. In their annual review of statistics, Facebook gathered and listed the top 25 places around the world its users checked into most. The list includes a lot of attractions in the eastern and central parts of the world, but interestingly enough, Rogers Arena was named a top contender in the west.

Rogers Arena easily welcomes 50,000 people a week and a lot of times more depending on the Canucks schedule and concerts.  It’s safe to assume a large fraction of those guests use social media, Facebook in particular, and check-in with their friends and family. This is a really cool stat for social media/online geeks and speaks volumes on the arena and how it ranks against others across the nation.
