Facebook’s “Nearby Friends” will show you the precise neighborhood your Facebook friends are located in when nearby as well as display the location of friends who are currently traveling. Luckily, you can turn off this feature to maintain privacy.

  2. Read and follow the instructions at: http://time.com/money/4831793/facebook-turn-off-nearby-friends-snapchat-map/
