What is Instagram Friend Map – Share Live Location

Ever wished you could easily see where your friends are hanging out on Instagram? Well, Instagram might be making that a reality with a feature called Friend Map.

Similar to Snapchat’s Snap Map, Friend Map would allow you to share your real-time location with your chosen friends on Instagram. This means you could see if your bestie is at the park, or if your friend group is already gathering for that movie night.

Here’s the exciting part: you’d be in control!

Privacy First

You’d choose who can see your location on the map, keeping your privacy in check.

Encrypted for Safety

Instagram is reportedly developing Friend Map with end-to-end encryption, which means only the people you choose can see your location.

More than just location

Friend Map might also let you see your past locations based on your posts and stories with location tags. Plus, there could be features like leaving messages or “notes” on the map for your friends.

Friend Map is currently being tested internally by Instagram and isn’t available to the public yet. There’s no official confirmation from Instagram about when or if Friend Map will be released to everyone.

So, while Friend Map sounds like a fun way to stay connected with your close friends, remember to wait for the official launch and always consider your privacy before sharing your location on any platform.
