How to add geolocation to Instagram and Facebook

Image post

To add a new location to Instagram or Facebook, you must first create it on Facebook.

Steps to create a new location on Facebook

  1. Log in to the Facebook mobile app, go to your profile and click Create Post.
  2. In the window that opens below you will see additional settings. Tap the Check in button, after which a window with a choice of location will appear.
  3. After that, in the search string you need to write the name of the desired place.
  4. If you cannot find the place you need, click on the Add button, after which the menu for creating a geotag will appear.
  5. Add location data – enter the name of the city in the search string. In the window that opens, you can add a photo, specify the address in the line or select it on the map. If you are in this location, then you need to select “I'm here right now.”
  6. If the place name you entered already exists, Facebook will offer options to replace it. You can use them or come up with something else. Check the information and click the Create button in the upper right corner. After that, it is no longer possible to make changes to the created geolocation.

Geolocation will appear on Instagram in 10-15 minutes. It can be added not only to new publications but also to previous ones – through the editing function or added to stories.

Steps to add geolocation to Instagram without Facebook

If you want to add geolocation exclusively to Instagram, your steps should be as follows:

1. Go to the Instagram mobile application and on the main screen, find icon in the upper right corner, and click on it to add new publication.

2. Then Instagram will automatically offer you to choose materials for publishing a post. You can take a photo by clicking on the icon at that very moment or choose a ready-made one from your gallery, and what’s more, you can choose up to 10 photos for one post.

3. After that, click on the Next button and choose a filter for your photos according to your preference if you wish.

4. Again, you click Next, select Add location from the list and enter the name of the street or city you want to specify.

5. Instagram will offer you a list of addresses that are nearby – place, street, city, and region.

6. When you have chosen the geolocation you want, click Share, and voila! – you’ve created new publication with geolocation.

You can also add geolocation to already existing publications.

  • For that, open the publication you want to add geotag to and then click on the three dots on the upper right.
  • Then click Edit and Add location.
  • Once you’ve made your choice, click Done.

If you want to add new geolocation that is not listed on Instagram, you should first add it to your Facebook account. Steps to do it we’ve written for you at the beginning of this blog.
