Facebook's Top 10 Cities For Romance (PHOTOS)

Posted: 02/11/2012 10:13 am

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, and, for most of us, romance is on the brain. Uptake has analyzed millions of status updates, photo captions and album covers on Facebook in order to bring you a list of the most smooch-worthy spots in the U.S. that people are talking about.

This data is based on analyzing close to 3 million pieces of text from Facebook status updates, photo captions and album names. Our system then extracted thousands of excerpts from this text, relating to "romance," and mapped them to cities.

The resulting list of cities was then ordered by sorting the number of positive statements about "romance" and the proportion of positive statements over all statements about romance.

Hopefully this will kick-start your romantic planning!

The sweet smell of magnolia blossoms and the smooth sounds of jazz floating down streets lined with colorfully shuttered houses; if every single one of your senses isn't seduced by New Orleans then you may be incapable of feeling romance. Facebook users seem to think that The Big Easy is an "easy" choice when looking to be swept away.
