How do I stop displaying my location in Facebook?

When I text or go on Facebook from within the iPhone app, I must hit something because when I’m keying a message it will show the person a small map of where I live!

I don’t want my location shown!

What can I do to stop this from happening?

Thank you!

    If you're using iOS 7 or below then see the below article -

    If using iOS 8,then Facebook app might had asked you for location access.You can change it under location settings of apps.It allows you to selectively disable location access for each app.

    In the Facebook mobile app, tap the location to remove it. On the iPhone, you can turn off location services for Facebook entirely by going to Settings > Location Services, and turning it off for Facebook.
