|How to Trace (Find) the Location of Friends on Facebook|
There are different methods to perform this task, so I recommend you to try all the method given on this page, if you wish you can skip any part.
#1 Create a Tracking Link to Track the Location of Facebook friends
This method is based on link creation via a free hosting site, here we will create a tracking link and send that link to our friends to track them.
First of all, you need a free hosting account I prefer to use the my3gb.com or use Hostgator.com( These are the free and best hosting sites)
Log in to your account and go to the “File Manager.”
Download the file “IP Tracking”
Extract the file using WinRAR or any extractor else; there will be three files.
Then upload all three files in “Public HTML” directory (folder) of File Manager, of your hosting account
Copy the link of your hosting site account and send to your friend whom you want to trace him/her. (For example youname.my3gb.com)
Location details of your Friend will be saved in a file named as log.txt in your hosting account when your friend will click on the link.
#2 Track the IP Address and Location of your Friends on Facebook
By using the command prompt, it is easy to find the IP Address of a person on Facebook, after finding the IP Address you can find the exact location of your Friends. You can follow the following step to find the location:-
Make sure that you have closed all the background processes, tab and windows.
Press Window + R to open the Run utility and type CMD in the box and press enter.
In the Command Prompt type “ netstat-an ” (without quotes) and hit enter.
Note the IP address of the person. Open IP Location Finder and enter the copied IP address and press enter.
#3 Track (Find) your Facebook friends location using Marauder Map Chrome Extension
Marauder Map is a very popular Google Chrome extension to find the location of Facebook users. I think you have watched Harry Potter (Literary Series) in which Marauder map is used for finding the location of people in real time, in the same way Marauder Map extension is used to track the location of Facebook friends in real time.
