Social networks have invaded our lives to such an extent that we measure the popularity of places depending on the mentions or "likes" they get on the network. And the thing is that there are many of us who share our day to day and, above all, our trips and getaways, through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter …
If at the moment there is a social network that stands out above the rest, it is Instagam , which, although it is used by all types of audiences, is especially popular among young people. Now, the holiday rental search engine Holidu has published the results of a study on the most popular Spanish cities on Instagram. How could it be otherwise, for this it has taken into account the number of #hashtags. Do you want to know them? Well join us!
