In the past we’ve added updates to the Location filter in order to provide more context around why accounts show up in a result. Today we are pushing an additional update that will show the location an account posts most frequently from.
On Twitter when you search in Location for San Francisco not only will you see the context for self identification, and geo-tag of tweets in San Francisco, but additionally you will see context for where that person posted the most from.
The most frequent location is useful because if someone doesn’t specifically self-identify on Twitter, you can get some context around where they’re most likely based. This will further help you in finding the right people for location based events or rewards.
On Instagram, we’ve found that the location most posted from can either be where the user is based or a vacation spot.
