Snap-happy Instagramers are more than ten times likely to post a picture taken in London than the next most popular Insta-destination in the UK – Manchester.

There has been 72.5million mentions of the UK capital on the picture sharing site since it launched, compared to 6.5 million in Manchester, according to analysis by social media analytics company Iconosquare.
