A recent report from Hashtag the World has ranked Dubai as the world’s 4th most hashtagged city on Instagram last year.

New York City was ranked in at first place with over 68 million posts, with London, Paris and Istanbul making it to the top 5, Gulf News reported.

The report said that more than 47 million posts included Dubai on the photo-sharing platform in 2016.

The study was created based on a study that ranked the world’s 30 most hashtagged cities during the last year, to have an in-depth understanding of the consistent growth of Instagram and hashtags in the travel industry.

The report also shows that Los Angeles, Tokyo, Las Vegas, San Diego, Rome, Atlanta, and Rio de Janeiro have experienced an annual growth of over 100 per cent in terms of hashtag usage.

A creative community leveraging the power of visual storytelling, Instagram has now become the most preferred alternative for people to share their positive experiences.
