    Scroll down and find the option labeled "Messenger location services".
    This option is currently activated, indicated by the blue switch on the right-hand side. Underneath it says, "When location is on, your messages include where you are by default. To turn location off/on for a specific conversation, tap the location icon before sending your message." If we're happy with people knowing where we are, we can leave this option on.
