Will Facebook remove the geotag data from the EXIF?

Will Facebook remove the GPS coordinates from my batch of JPEG files? I remember reading something about FB removing information like that to minimize file sizes when photos are uploaded to their servers.

I'm sure if it strips exif, (which it does) then yes, it will also get rid of that as well (along with any decent picture quality :twisted:)

try it?

Facebook strips all Exif Data and compresses your images to save space. I guess compression and low IQ isn't enough for them so they also have to strip away that extra kb or two of the exif data.

Are you trying to post pics with the geotag data retained?

What I typically do if I want to share more than just the little Facebook images is I'll post a link to my PBase collection where people can see bigger versions and also see the exif. I don't know how getotagging would show up in PBase or Flickr though.

Yea, I want to post it with the geotag data retained, but thanks for the tip though!

I don't recall seeing any exif show up on Facebook, but I'll admit I haven't delved into any of the inner workings of FB...
