Can I Trace Location of a Facebook User?


Do you want to trace location of a Facebook user and you want to ensure that can you do that? No, you can’t… You will not able to do it anymore since Facebook has stopped to share location service with third services. So you will not able to trace/track someone’s location with an application, program, software or extension. Marauders map has done a great job for this service in the past but it is not working anymore. They have also disabled this service with the request of Facebook and they have removed the extension from the Chrome Store. You will not able do it at all.

This is their recent announcement for the situation:

AT FACEBOOK’S REQUEST I HAVE DEACTIVATED THE OFFICIAL VERSION OF THE APP (CAUSING THE MAP TO NOT DISPLAY). FURTHERMORE, FACEBOOK HAS DEACTIVATED LOCATION SHARING FROM THEIR DESKTOP WEBSITE SO THIS CODE WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY ANYMORE.

Unfortunately, you will not able to use anything related with Facebook locations anymore but there are things you can do with legal ways but these are not really perfect ways to figure out where is your friend.

Tracing Location of a Facebook User

You can always check locations of your friends through their status and picture shares on Facebook. However your friends needs to enable this service before he/she shares pictures or status on the account. This is not what everyone do on the website but some people do it. Hope the best and take a look at location tags of your friend. Hopefully you will find something. This is how your friends can tag their location on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/help/115298751894487

Another option is asking… But I am sure this won’t help you much.

Is It Legal to Trace Someone’s Location on Facebook?

Since Facebook doesn’t share location of their users with third services, you will need to connect that service with illegal ways and we don’t think that it is going to be legal. You can even be charged for this in courts. If you have any question regarding this subject please ask us.
