Instagram remove custom location functionality

Instagram have removed the custom location functionality in their latest app update. According to Instagram, ’custom locations created in the past will still appear on existing posts, but you can’t add custom location to new posts’.

Over the last few months Instagram have been pushing the places feature within the app. This latest update suggests that location continues to be at the heart of their strategy as users will no longer be able to include URLs or creative content in the location field.
