You can enable our awesome Map theme in the "Design" settings of your Wall.

Posts providing location metadata will then show up on a Map, giving viewers of the Wall rich context and an instant feel for the location of the Post.
This is especially useful for visualizing global campaigns or worldwide phenomena. In the following example we used #geocache:

Help, a lot of Posts are not showing up on my Wall when using the Map theme!

This is expected behaviour: only posts that contain geolocation will show up on the Wall when using the Map theme. Currently, the majority of posts on social media networks doesn’t contain geolocation – simply because, as a matter of safety, social networks don’t query this kind of information automatically. Users have to activate this functionality themselves and most users don’t enable geolocation for their posts (e.g. for privacy concerns).

You can however manually set a location of your choice for native posts that you create. Those will show up wherever you place them on Earth.


Finally, for Twitter posts we provide a workaround: on Twitter, a user's profile can contain a location for this user (e.g. the place where he/she lives). If a user set a location on their profile then we automatically geocode all of their posts to this location, even if the posts themselves don't contain geographical information. If an individual post is geocoded to a different place (say the user was on holiday and posted from a different location on purpose) then the location specified in the post takes precedence over the location setting in the user's profile.
