A scroll through Twitter and Instagram every morning in Cleveland might make it feel like no one who lives here does anything but take and/or share pictures of the Cleveland skyline — taken at various angles and at various times of day, of course, because with only three tall buildings to capture, there's only so many ways to distinguish the photos from one another — all day every day.

According to a study from Pixsy, it's not just a feeling.



Analyzing the number of skyline pics posted to Instagram across the world, Pixsy found that Clevelanders rank 15th on planet Earth for the most IG skyline posts (12) per 1,000 residents. Forest City residents, it turns out, really just can't stop taking photos of those three buildings, probably while wearing their Cleveland t-shirts.

The Most Instagrammed City Skylines in the World (total posts vs population), according to Pixsy's widely disseminated press release:

Boston, Massachusetts, USA – 66 posts per 1000 residents
Miami, Florida, USA – 55 posts per 1000 residents
Seattle, Washington, USA – 39 posts per 1000 residents
Frankfurt, Germany – 39 posts per 1000 residents
Atlanta, Georgia, USA – 25 posts per 1000 residents
