The most normal thing is that when you go to upload a photo or a new video to your Instagram feed, you can properly geolocate the location indicating where the photograph was taken. The application has a very extensive database with all types of locations, so it is not difficult to find the one you are looking for.
“To create a new location on Instagram you need to check in on Facebook.”
However, Instagram users know that in some cases the options shown are not correct, because they are poorly written or, for example, because they are displayed in a language other than their own. It is also possible that we want to create a new location for our business or company, in order to provide our customers and supporters with the possibility of uploading content to their Instagram accounts and using geolocation in them.
This can bring us different benefits, especially visibility and the possibility of getting new clients for our business among those users who have liked the published and geolocated photo.
So, if we do not find the location we want on Instagram, or we need to create a new location for our business, how can we do it? The process is simple, but it is true that the app does not explain it and many users are totally lost.
Steps to create a new location on Instagram
1.-To create a new location on Instagram we will have to develop much of the process on Facebook. The first thing we will have to do is create the location on Facebook to later synchronize it with Instagram.
2.-First you have to enable the location in your Facebook account, something that by default is disabled. By clicking on the configuration options, you can reach Location “, where you will have to activate this option.
3.-Once the location is activated, you can create a check-in status on Facebook. To do this you must click on “I’m here” and scroll through the options to get to “Add custom location.” There you can publish the place where you are or where your business is located and that did not appear among the Instagram options.
4 + You will have to choose a category for that new location that you just created. Once this is done, you can select “I am currently here”. You must publish your check-in status on Facebook.
5.-Once you have published your check-in status on Facebook (this is an essential condition) you can open the Instagram application and upload a new photo or video. When going to “add location”, you will find the new location that you created on Facebook when using the search engine.
