When you post a Facebook status, you can choose to specify where you are and what you’re doing. If you’re at a park, a store or at any other location, you can tag your location, and if you’re at an event like a movie, you can add a Fb movie status or a status stating what you’re doing. If you intend to show your location with every status update, there are just a few things you should do. You can add your location to a post to tell people you’re at a specific place, like your home or a restaurant

1. Update your current city from your profile

Make sure that your current city is updated on your profile and it is set to public. To do this,

Go to your profile on mobile or desktop. On the web version,Click on Profile  and then click on about. Under About click on Places you’ve lived in and then input your Current City and Pick it when it appears.

On mobile, go to Profile and select Edit profile. Under Edit profile click on Edit Details.

Type in the current city and Pick it when it appears. This part is important.

2. Enable location from your phone settings

For this to work, you need to make sure location/GPS is enabled in your phone settings. Go through the settings and enable it if it’s disabled. You may simply pull down the Notification Center to enable it depending on the make of your phone.

Also, make sure to check permission settings. Make sure you have not specifically disabled location sharing for your Facebook app. If the Facebook app does not have the required permission to access your location, this might not work.

Removing your location from your Facebook status updates

If you need to remove your location from your Facebook status updates and photos, you should only do two things:

1. Remove/hide your current city from your profile

To do this, open your profile on mobile or desktop. On the web version, go to Profile and click on About. Under about search for Places you’ve lived in and delete the input under Current City.

On mobile, go to Profile and click on Edit profile. Under Edit profile select Edit Details and click on Current city.Delete your current city or set the permission to “Only me.”

2. Disable GPS/location on your phone

Go to the settings and disable it if it is already enabled. You can simply pull down the Notification Center to put it off depending on the kind of device you’re using. Also, you can change permissions just for the Facebook app and deny its permission to access your location from settings on your device.

After this is done, Facebook should no longer update your status with your location.

You can also edit your location from posts.

You can only edit or remove a location on your own post.

To edit your location on a post:

  • Go to the post.
  • Click on  and select Edit Post.
  • Click on .
  • Pick a new location and then click Save.

To remove your location on a post:

  • Go to the post.
  • Click on  and select Edit Post.
  • Click on .
  • Click on ‘x’ to the right of At (Your Location) to remove your current location.
  • Click on Save.
