How to add a location on Instagram before and after sharing a post

Instagram's features are constantly being updated, with new features being added and old ones discontinued. In our “Instagram Guides,” we’ll look at Instagram, explain its new and old features, and show you how to get the most out of the platform for your marketing strategy. Today: How to add a location on Instagram before and after sharing a post.

By tagging a location, you can reach even more people and gain new subscribers as a result. In our detailed guide, we’ll show you how the location sticker works and how it can help your business.

How do I add my location before sharing a photo or video?

After you've taken a photo or video and applied filters or effects as usual, you can add your location. Here's how to add your location in just three steps:

1. Tap “Add Location.”

2. Use a location from the suggestions or search for and select a location.

3. Tap “Share.”

If you want, you can also use a public Facebook event as your location. As with a location page, you can tap the event name to pull up all the photos and videos that have been shared publicly at that event or location.

How do I add my location if I've already published the photo or video?

You can also add a location to a photo or video you've already published, or go back and edit the location you originally chose. We'll show you how both options work.
