    ah ok thanks, it says "Location Services for Facebook is only available on a mobile Android or iOS device" so does that mean if I only use Facebook on desktop it doesn't use my location? thanks

    If you use Facebook via the computer, your online location is not known by other people, unless you make a point to share that information manually.

    Click on the edit thread option and amend the thread title to put "Resolved" in the first part of the title. That way people will know you have been helped.
