Brits have been found to love sharing photos from their vacation, with 70% of vacationers posting around five photos each day of their vacation. And it’s not just younger travelers who share their vacations online, with research showing that 35-44 year olds post as much as their younger counterparts on vacation.
Some of the most popular images to share with friends and families are sea and seaside images and natural landscapes.
