AmericanAirlines Arena among world’s most Instagrammed sports locations

MIAMI (WSVN) - Whether it’s for selfies, picturesque views, or funny cat videos, Instagram continues to be a social media phenomenon.

The AmericanAirlines Arena, home to the Miami Heat, has made AdWeek’s list as one of the world’s most photographed sports venues on the social media app.

The Triple-A ranked at No. 11 on the list of most-Instagrammed sports venues in the U.S., and at No. 18 worldwide. Miami’s arena joined the likes of Madison Square Garden, Wrigley Field, and Yankee Stadium on the list.

Central Florida made the top of the list with two of the year’s most Instagrammed locations: Disney properties, and Universal Studios properties.

The list also broke down some of the most popular Instagram posts of 2016. Selena Gomez posted eight of the 10 most popular posts of the year, while soccer superstar Cristiano Rinaldo posted the other two.

Gomez is the most followed person on Instagram with 103 million followers, outpacing Taylor Swift. Halloween was the most Instagrammed day of the year. And #love was the top Instagram hashtag used.
