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.

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).
