as mentioned above, the link has to contain coordinates but can also contain description: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=description+(name)+%4046.090271,6.657248 In case you need to place multiple markers on the map, you will have to use some of the online tools, for example http://www.hamstermap.com and then choose QUICK MAP.

I can think of a couple reasons this may happen The company you are at is routing through a common gateway, which was located at your old office, so your public IP address looks like your old location Cookies (ruled out) or localStorage set on the browser. Clearing cookies may not clear localStorage. Try using a different browser (one you have not accessed ...

BEFORE you post the status - that detail was left off the last answer. I think that will do the trick. If not, I'll correct this post. Click on the little "x" next to the city name to remove the location tag and it won't be added next time you update till you specially add the location yourself. After logout/login, the setting persists

There are many parameters which a server can use to identify a visitor. IP address is the first, cookies is another possibility, but the browser itself provides a "signature" including its full version, the name and version of the OS, the languages and encoding it supports... Also, it is easy to use JavaScript or Flash to identify plugins, screen resolution ...

Recently, the http://akas.imdb.com endpoint stopped working. By default, IMDb will now use your geolocation to provide localized content. However, you can override this behaviour by sending an Accept-Language HTTP header. Using Ruby, this is how I solved this problem: require 'open-uri' imdb_url = 'http://www.imdb.com/chart/top' headers = {'Accept-...

This answer was close, go to Facebook Privacy Settings, Edit Settings, How Tags Work. Then click on Tag Review. You'll then need to manually review any time someone tags you, but it lets you decline location tags (as well as pics and posts if that's to your liking).

Go to Facebook Privacy Settings Click on Edit Settings next to How Tags Work (second from the top) Click on Friends Can Check You Into Places using mobile Places app (the lowest option) and disable it Click OK

I think you should be able to do this using a KML file which contains Network Links to your KMZ files. The nice thing about the Network Links is that it doesn't have to be KMZ files it can be a script or feed that outputs a KMZ/KML file. There is a demo of how to do this here under the section Generating a Random Placemark Basically you create a KML file ...

Geolocation is an optional field, in this instance it appears NASA has opted not to use it. You are also correct in saying Twitter doesn't currently support it. According to the spec for the Twitter API, the coordinates field is formatted as geoJSON (longitude first, then latitude). geoJSON does allow you to specify a coordinate reference system (CRS) ...

If you do not want to create an IMDb account and set your preferences there you need to: Add X-FORWARDED-FOR with U.S. IP address to your HTTP headers. You can lookup example U.S. IP address from any proxy list, e.g. http://proxylist.hidemyass.com/. The X-Forwarded-For (XFF) HTTP header field is a de facto standard for identifying the originating IP ...

Facebook now strips all metadata from posted pictures to avoid this problem: What information can someone see when they download my photo from Facebook? However, be careful when you post links to photos on other websites or when using third-party image hosting services with Facebook, Twitter, etc.

No, you can't do that. There is nothing in Gmail's settings to restrict from where your account can be accessed. Really, you shouldn't have to. Google already does some checking to see if your account is being accessed from wildly divergent locations. According to the Google Online Security Blog: You may remember that a while back we launched remote ...

I'm not sure if hotmail updated their functionality, but earlier Hotmail & AOL used to include sender's IP address X-Originating-IP in the email header. Same is applicable for Yahoo as well. However, if you send through GMAIL, ip address will not be included in the email if you send it through web ui. I remember that they have updated so that even ...

Go to your LastPass Vault, Then to Settings > Equivalent Domains. You want to make sure the Yelp Domains you use, are considered equivalent. This is what I added: yelp.com, yelp.be, yelp.ca Apply the changes in the Settings, (requires Lastpass Master Password verification) As for Auto Login, that only works if there is a form to AutoFill. So unless you ...

GeoLocation is an interesting field see this link which lists some popular options for you. For full code to know the latitude and longitude see this link, the link use Google API, However you can get similar results for other alternatives. One more thing practical experiments say that Yahoo's results are more accurate sometimes. I can post full code for ...

Do the following with the latest Google Map (as of 2015-10-15): Select the location by clicking it: Click the link with latitude and longitude, you will get the map with the location marked: You can copy the link after verifying the map.

Try this (it will definitely work with a pointer to your location on map): http://maps.google.com/maps?q=39.211374,-82.978277+(My+Point)&z=14&ll=39.211374,-82.978277

Here's how I do it. Install Google Maps Lab 's LatLng Marker for your Google Maps account Search for a place & use Drop LatLng Marker to any location you want. Click on the marker and copy the longtitude+latitude. (Here's a very good post on how to do this.) Create the shared link by pasting the text as below http://maps.google.com/maps?z=18&q=<...

As of 2016, the only solution that works for me is: Go to "Options" In the "Default Search" click "Manage" Click "Add" Enter the following details: Name = Google USA Keyword = google.com URL = https://www.google.com/search?q=%s&pws=0&gl=us&gws_rd=cr Click OK Then click Google USA and click "Make Default"

The twitter website seems to do a XHR request to https://twitter.com/account/geo_location.json which returns the user's current location as a json object. Since location detail is about city-level, I'd guess they are using the client's IP address to locate them using a IP-Locations database. There are numerous commercial and free API's available to match ...

If you use a VPN service - like the free online VPN Tunnel, your IP will never be revealed.

It depends on what they include in the email's headers. E.g. X-Originating-IP: In 1999 Hotmail included an X-Originating-IP email header field that shows the IP address of the sender. As of December 2012, Hotmail removed this header field, replacing it with X-EIP (meaning encoded IP) with the stated goal of protecting users' privacy. Some services ...

you could try doing a reverse image search, whereby you upload the image to google's image search page, and google will search for similar images to the one you uploaded, if it finds any matches, you can visit the web page the similar image is located on and check it for any clues as to the location, more info on this method is located here: https://www....

I'm using Fedora, so in network setting I manually enter the DNS server IP address(es) of either the ISP from my home or a local Google server. This has helped me in the past loading the pages in English and not the local language.

According to the Google payments help page Change your home, business, or billing address and country: Each payments profile can be associated only with one country due to tax regulations on the payment methods you pay with. You can't change the country for an existing payments profile and need to create a new profile to add another country. Creating a ...

I understand your desire here. I don't know of a way to do these using the foursquare settings, however you might be able to hide the checkins using Facebook's privacy settings, or disabling Foursquare in your activity feed. Experiment and let us know.

When creating the Page, you should have chosen the Local Business or Place category. If this was not done originally, then it can be fixed after-the-fact using: Edit Page ==> Update Public Info ==> Basic Information: change Category: to Local Businesses.

I'm not sure whether still relevant five years later! (Tagged untagged it has probably been "under the horizon" for many.)

This is the same position as for Naver ...

Although Facebook provides a way to add a location hyperlink to a post, even without that your friends can still inadvertently share your location just as part of plain text or photos. For example if a friend tags you in a photo at some recognizable location then your location is apparent even though there is no location hyperlink. They could also tag you ...

There is no setting to currently do this. I would imagine that your hometown needs to be "realized" via search (https://www.facebook.com/search/results.php). So if it's not there you would not be able to detect in the profile settings. Consider creating a new location (https://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=175921872462772) then you should be able to use it as ...
