[abstract] In this position paper we argue that certain types of social media systems, such as Instagram and Foursquare, can act as valuable source of sensing, providing access to important characteristics of urban locations and urban social behavior. We discuss some of our previous studies and present our thoughts about the future of this eld based insights obtained from them.
