What have Sheffield's Tiger Works Bar and Graves Park in common?
They're city's top tourist attractions using Instagram popularity search tools that also confirmed Proove as most app-etising regional restaurant ... best bar om nom nom.
Accompanied by "Are You Instagram Obsessed" quiz, we exclusively reveal Tiger Works Bar on West Street was Sheffield's most Instagrammed pub last year - within top 100 across UK - according to hashtag analysis http://www.witter-towbars.co.uk/latestnews/?p=1236 during year to January 26 by Witter-Towbars.
Proove on Fulwood Road proved city's most popular restaurant while 91.9 hectare Graves Park thousand year-old woodland and animal farm (here aerially filmed) topped tourism attractions table.
Reckless Agency content marketing and outreach executive Scott Taylor, curator of the social media photo and video-sharing site stats, said: "It's rare in this age of Instagram to go out to a restaurant or bar and not see someone snapping away on their smartphone. For many, showing off their latest culinary delight is an absolute must. To others, it’s just plain rude!
"Some places have tried to banning food selfies all together. To most restaurant owners though, the idea of letting customers shower social media with flatteringly-filtered pictures is a welcome bit of free marketing for the venue".
Andrew Royles, of Witter Towbars, added: “Instagram users share photographs that detail only the beautiful moments in their lives. Compared to a popularity or rating system like TripAdvisor, we think using Instagram data is far more positive as users only embrace what is really special to them.”
