The Facebook application allows you to add GPS locations to photos used in posts. The feature, also present in Messenger, inserts a virtual sticker indicating the location where the photo was produced. When publishing the image, the location is also available in the post, as in the function of check in. When you tap on the name of the place, your friends are taken to a map.
Next, see how to use the location stickers on Facebook for Android and iPhone (iOS). It is important to make sure that the social network app has access to the location of the cell phone, and that the photos in the library also have the registered location. In practice, the action is similar to Instagram stickers.
