10 Top European Tourist Spots Ranked According to Social Media

With an estimated share of 9% of global GDP, the tourism industry is a major contributor to the world’s economy. But aside from financial impact, tourism is also a huge topic on social media: every day, thousands of people share posts about where they went or want to go. A recent Deloitte study revealed that social media has become the third biggest source of inspiration for travel consumers, only superseded by word of mouth and friends and family recommendations.
