To boost this feature Facebook has introduced a set of privacy controls. Users can customize the number of friends with whom he wants to share its whereabouts. When the users tag other friends in the status update, then there appears an two options for the friend, ‘Allow’ or ‘Not Now’ whereby the friend can decide with whom to share location.
