Facebook Now Lets You Temporarily Share Your Location With Friends and Facebook

Last week, Google announced a new feature that lets users temporarily share their locations on Google Maps. (They also killed Gchat. Which … sad.) Now, not to be outdone, Facebook Messenger is rolling out a similar feature for its users. Called Live Location, Facebook users will now be able to send their location for up to 60 minutes. Unlike a previous feature where Facebook users could share a singular location pin, Live Location will update as a person moves, so you’ll be able to see just how close “almost there” actually is.
