Facebook: how to add location by GPS in photo posted via mobile

The Facebook app lets you add GPS locations to photos used in posts. The feature, also present in Messenger, inserts a virtual sticker indicating the place where the photo was produced. When posting the image, the location is also available in the post, as happens in the check-in function . When you touch the name of the place, your friends are taken to a map.

Here's how to use Facebook location cards for Android and iPhone (iOS). It's important to make sure that the social network app has access to the location of the phone, and that the photos in the library also have the location registered. In practice, the action is similar to Instagram stickers.
