Facebook adds Location Tagging to Timeline Rollout

Posted on Dec 16, 2011 By : Admin Ragamagz

There’s one big new feature in today’s global rollout of Facebook Timeline. Facebook has enhanced the Timeline Map with a wizard that lets you rapidly tag your existing photos with locations. You can also now type in a location and share rich stories about whether you’ve been, took a trip, or lived there. The Map feature could seriously advance Facebook’s “location as a layer” plan. By convincing users to append valuable geographic data to its massive collection of photos with this easy flow, Facebook could improve local ad targeting.

TechCrunch sees it as another tool to collect data and better target ads, but an engineer on the project says it's not.
