With more than 2 million Facebook check-ins, the Los Angeles Airport has emerged as the place people like to brag about passing through the most.

That’s according to the data crunchers over at SocialBakers, who ranked the world’s most checked-in places on Facebook. In a sign that people are most inclined to broadcast their whereabouts when they’re about to jet off to another destination, the list was dominated by airports, most of which came from within the US.

Other places people liked to crow about checking into included Disneyland and Times Square in New York, while it seems that residents in Pennsylania and West Virginia seem to particularly enjoy telling their friends when they've arrived home.

The only non-US places to crack the top 20 list include one of the main airports in Thailand and a popular hub for holidaymakers in South East Asia; a major shopping center in Bangkok and one of the biggest in Asia, the Siam Paragon; and the Hong Kong International Airport.
