Another way to track a location of a Facebook user is through chrome. Chrome has a new Chrome browser extension and this enables your Facebook friends to get your exact location.

This discovery was made by Harvard student Aran Khanna. The chrome web extension is called Marauders Map. This map shows up whenever you visit the facebook messager page.

This map will show the location of everyone on your chat list.

According to Aran, he was able to discover the exact location of a fellow student while analyzing the data he got through the map.

So all you have to do is to click on the Marauders Map which pops up whenever you use the new chrome browse to access your Facebook account.
