Airports, as miserable as they are in the overall travel experience these days, continue to be a place to show off, and social media outlets like Facebook are perfect venues for that.

The most-checked in places on the planet, surprise surprise, mostly happen to be airports. People love checking-in them and broadcasting it, showing off to friends on Facebook. At least least that’s what the Facebook Graph API on people’s check-ins shows, according to data picked up and organized by SocialBakers.

U.S. airports dominate the top, then Asian airports (Hong Kong, Bangkok and Taiwan, among others) in the middle. The only non-airports in top list are Disneyland and Times Square.
