If you want to know the location of someone, then you will have to rely on a third-party app. It also requires a bit of work, but finally, you will be able to know the current and accurate location of your friend.  In order to track the exact location of your friend, you will need to access an online website called “IPLogger.”

Tracking Location of Someone Using Hashtags and Tags

Another method to know the location of someone on Facebook is by using their used hashtags. See the instructions given below to know your friend’s location:

  1. Search for location tags, to do that in Facebook messenger, check for the latest Facebook stories.
  2. To find a location tag of a shared photo on Facebook, press on the image, and then click on the option, which is something that seems like “show location.”
  3. Now your device will take you to Google Maps, and you will be able to see the location of the person. 

The above method is not that accurate since people sometimes tag fake location in their pictures.
