Social media sites are started for the main reason of tracking, monitoring, profiling you. It's not some creepy side consequence.

I believe location can be is stored in EXIF information saved in jpg and some other photo files. If you take the photograph with a camera that has no GPS, this information will not be saved. Perhaps some readers would like to test their cameras and smartphones and let us know if location is stored with the files. In the EXIF information for photographs I take with my camera there is a line that says "GPS information:" but it is followed by a blank.
