2. From Location Hashtags

If you still don’t know the location of your friends on Messenger with the above methods, you can use this method for the same.

You can use the location Hashtags that your friends have used on the images or the videos that they have posted on Messenger as a story or as a post on the Facebook app.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: First of all, when you place the Hashtag on the post or the Messenger story of your friend, tap on the tag location.

Step 3: You will be redirected to Google Maps which will show you the location of your friend. However, this location may not be their exact location. It is the location where they posted that particular story or video on the Messenger app.

How to find out where a Facebook Message was sent from:

One simple way in which you can find out where the message sender or the message is from is to go and visit the Facebook profile of the particular individual.

Sometimes the location is mentioned in the bio, or you can ascertain the same by looking at the posts they made in the duration when they sent a particular message. You can also look at their friends and their profile names and deduce where this person may be from. Another thing you can do is go to their “About Info” section from their profile area and scroll to find their country.
