Social Media Stalking Chrome Extension Gets Shut Down by Facebook

Marauder's Map, a Chrome extension that showed your Facebook friends' exact physical whereabouts, was officially axed on Thursday.
Harvard computer science major Aran Khanna, an incoming Facebook intern, announced he had created Marauder's Map in a Medium post earlier this week.
For a time, users who downloaded the Chrome extension gained access to a map that precisely pinpointed the location of their friends on a map that popped up in Facebook.
The caveat: Facebook friends also needed to be Messenger users, since the app tracks user locations by default.
Khanna told Mashable he deactivated the official version at Facebook's request, although a complicated workaround is available on Github.
