Instagram stories have gained popularity over the years as an interesting way to express yourself on Instagram. You can add images, videos, and texts as your Instagram stories, and they will be visible to your followers for 24 hours and then automatically disappear.
To make the use of Instagram stories more interesting, Instagram allows the use of several stickers, including the location sticker when creating your stories. The location sticker allows you to create and add locations to your Instagram stories that wish to target a specific area.
The location sticker is mostly used in business posts where business owners wish to reveal the physical location of their businesses. The location sticker can also be used to describe the location from which a picture was taken, or an event was held. This piece highlights how you can create and add a location in your Instagram account.
