Facebook's Top Check-In Spot for San Francisco: AT&T Park

Can't find your friend? Check AT&T Park.
  • Can't find your friend? Check AT&T Park.
We figured local strip clubs and the proctologist's office probably wouldn't be on list of Facebook's top "check-ins." But you know what is: AT&T Park.

In the study released yesterday, Facebook analyzed data from 25 cities, including San Francisco, and found that a majority of their users are catching a game at a sports arena. It should come as no surprise then that the city's top spot for "check-ins" is none other than AT&T Park. Chicago's Wriggly Field and L.A.'s Staple Center also grabbed the no.1 spot in their respective cities. Second place went to public areas, such as New York's Times Square. The list ended in a three-way-tie: people really like malls, roller coasters, and going to concerts. 

And in Oslo, Norway? Everyone is hanging out at T.G.I Fridays.

Obviously, good weather plays a significant role in where people are most likely to congregate; in Moscow, where it's freezing cold, people are inside boozing, for instance. But we're guessing people at AT&T Park don't mind the chilly nights by the Bay as long as long as they can afford $9.50 for Bud Light and keep hoping that 2010 will be repeated this year.

You can find the complete list of Facebook check-ins here. By the way, we're still not sure how the Eiffel Tower didn't grab Paris's top spot.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
