The social networking platform Instagram came out with its response after the news that its latest update activates “Location” for its users and makes them vulnerable to criminals and hackers. Thanks to the comment, Instagram said “we’ve seen a meme going around about Instagram’s use of ‘direct location.'” Instagram further clarified its position by saying “to be clear, We don’t share your location with others. Unlike other social media companies, we use your exact location for things like location tags and map features.” According to Instagram, people can control ‘Location Services’ through their device settings, and tag locations on their posts if they want to share that information.
