L.A. International Is Facebook's Most Social Airport

Los Angeles International Airport ranks as the most social out of the world’s airports, based on the number of check-ins to Facebook and other geolocation services.

Call me biased by my location, but I’m shocked to see Atlanta and Chicago beat out San Francisco, New York’s largest airport only ranks 14th and Silicon Valley’s travel hub in San Jose, California, doesn’t show up on this list at all.

Perhaps less surprising, checking into social media at airports also appears to be a largely U.S. phenomenon, accounting for all but five on the list.

The list of 25 follows below; readers, why do you suppose people check into LAX via social media more than any other airport in the world?
