Instagram has opened location tagging up to business accounts, so if you have one you should be able to see your profile’s location in posts and stories. But it can be frustrating when you add a location tag and your location doesn’t show up on the post or story. This is because Instagram uses Facebook’s database to determine your location, and sometimes that data can be inaccurate.
The first thing to check is that the address you’ve entered on your business’s Facebook page matches the one in Instagram’s database. If it doesn’t, it’s important to update the business’s address on both Facebook and Instagram so they match, which can fix the problem. If this doesn’t fix the issue, you can also try to reset your network settings. This can help erase bugs that could be preventing your phone from accessing GPS data.
Another reason your location may not be showing up on Instagram is that it simply isn’t in their database. This can happen if your business is new and doesn’t have a well-established presence in your area yet. This is why it’s so important to keep posting quality content on a regular basis, so that over time, Instagram recognizes your business and begins including it in its database.
Lastly, if you’ve checked all of the above and your location still isn’t showing up on Instagram, it’s possible that your mobile device isn’t allowing apps to use its GPS data. To fix this, make sure that your phone isn’t in airplane mode and that your internet connectivity is working.
