Can I Create My Own Custom Location for Instagram?

Yes, you can. The location tag you create could be for anywhere, such as your business address. Or you could create a fictional place and create a tag for there too, for example, “My House.” To do this, you will need to use both Facebook and Instagram, as they are interlinked and owned by the same company. Creating a custom location on Instagram is simple and requires only a few steps:

1. Launch your Facebook app and sign in.

2. Create a post by tapping on “What's on your mind.”

3. Select “Check In.”

4. In the search bar, type the name of the location you want to create. If a location with the same name already exists, you will need to change yours slightly to make yours unique.

5. Press “Search” or “Done.”

6. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and tap “Add [Name of your location].”

7. Fill in the “Place name,” “Address,” and “City,” and then tap “Save Custom Place.”

8. You can now navigate out of Facebook.

The next step is to use this location in Instagram:
