Who wants to look at Facebook without text, I asked, when Instagram was launched. Who wants to look at Twitter with pictures, I asked? Why am I am hobo eating beans out of a can over a tire fire, I’ll be asking next year, because man I am bad at forecasting tech trends. Instagram has taken over the world, literally, with 150 million or so people ignoring their friends and uploading  more than 55 million photos a day. That’s a lot of lattes and beach knees.

The company announced a few of their superlatives from 2013 today, including the most popular spots to take photos from. Here’s the list:

Siam Paragon (สยามพารากอน) shopping mall, Bangkok, Thailand

Staples Center, Los Angeles
Central Park, New York
Your Mom’s Bedroom
Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles
