How to Put Facebook’s Map Back on your Profile

First, I should mention, frequently Facebook changes how things are managed on the site.  One thing it changes a lot is the map, otherwise known as places. So if you find an old post that isn’t quite right, don’t hesitate to let me know.  This post is written in response to a question about how to restore the Facebook map on your profile.

On the top, right  corner you will see the option, Add to Profile.  Click on it, and your map will be restored to your profile.

Simple as that.
