Although Apple’s Find My Friends is a handy way for you to share your location with a group of friends on an ongoing basis, the built-in Maps app actually provides an easy way to quickly share your current location with anybody via Messages, Twitter, or Facebook. Simply tap on the blue dot for your current location in the Maps app, and then tap the blue arrow on the right to get more information on your current location, from where you can access the “Share Location” option to send out your current location via Messages or post it on Twitter or Facebook. This can be a handy way to let your friends know where you when planning a meetup.
