Instagram is Testing a Feature That Shares Your Precise Location History with Facebook

The Infinite Brief
Instagram is currently testing a feature that would allow it to share your location data with Facebook, even when you’re not using the app.

The option allows Facebook products to “build and use a history of precise locations” which the company says, “helps you explore what’s around you, get more relevant ads and helps improve Facebook.”

The discovery of the feature comes just weeks after Instagram’s co-founders resigned from the company, reportedly as a result of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s meddling in the service.
