Now, as good news (at least for me), the social media site has added improvements to its location settings, giving users more control over their location data. On iOS, you can decide whether to share your precise location always, only when the app is in use, or never.
For people who previously chose to turn their Location History setting "on", the new background location setting is "on".
Previously, the Facebook app for Android either let you keep location services off or on.

Facebook is alerting both Android and iOS users about the new and existing locations sharing options. If you never turned on "Location History", you won't get an alert. For users who have Location History on, the Background Location setting will be turned on by default.
Beyond providing "nearby" benefits to users and being valuable for targeting, attribution and other advertising purposes, Facebook says it also captures user location for account security.
Notably, Facebook said it wouldn't be "collecting any new information as a result of this update". So if you had them off, they will stay off but if you had them on you can now choose to restrict it to while using the app only.
In France, location data provider Teemo found that with more transparency and control, as compelled under GDRP, users were highly likely to opt-in to share location (70+ percent).
