    Stalking Your Friends with Facebook Messenger

    As you may know, when you send a message from the Messenger app there is an option to send your location with it. What I realized was that almost every other message in my chats had a location attached to it, so I decided to have some fun with this data. I wrote a Chrome extension for the Facebook Messenger page ( that scrapes all this location data and plots it on a map. You can get this extension here and play around with it on your message data.
