If you're an Android user, Facebook could be tracking your location even when you're not using the app. Android users had an all or nothing option, meaning if location tracking is enabled, Facebook will always be tracking you even when the app is closed.
The company has rolled out new location control for Android app users, and it's sending an alert to users - both on iOS and Android - to check their location settings for the app. Users can maintain location services but disallow background data collection when the app isn't being used.
Facebook is alerting both Android and iOS users about the new and existing locations sharing options.

Without hassles, you can now prevent Facebook from background location tracking.
The social network uses location data to show people nearby friends and events, but it also uses the info to feed targeted ads. Although, an agreement was there to notify the users about it but it was a little vague, to be honest, and the users weren't able to properly comprehend what they were getting themselves into by agreeing to such terms. That's why the latest changes wouldn't affect people using iOS. "We're not making any changes to the choices you've previously made nor are we collecting any new information as a result of this update". In addition to that, a primary location feature will also be added, accessible via "access your information" tool. This will also be better for users to watch content with more privacy and less effort.
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).
