You can send your location on Snapchat to a single friend or to several users in a group.

Whether you want to share the location of your favorite restaurant or the address of your new apartment, you can easily send your location on Snapchat to your friends.

You can do this using the Snap Map and will even be prompted to select who you want to share you location with the first time you use the app feature. You can choose to share your location with your mutual friends, a list of friends with exceptions, or a small group of selected friends.

To send your location directly to a mutual Snapchat friend, you must visit your chat history through your friends list. Once there, you can choose to send your location or request your friend's. The Snap Map will update once you've sent it and your location will appear in your private conversation history.

Locations expire after a few hours or when you go into Ghost Mode .

Here's how to send your location.
