    I read that some pics you take with your phone have hidden tags with the GPS position you were at when you took the picture. I'm not sure if the pics I take with my galaxy s2 have that I will post a pic I took and can you tell me if it has it or not http://s12.postimg.org/af75bab8d/20120922_191214.jpgt.

    The geo-location tags are part of the EXIF data embedded in the image.

    There's no EXIF and/or location data in that picture at all. However that doesn't mean that the original doesn't contain this data. The EXIF data is sometimes stripped when you upload to a picture hosting site. Is this the original image or only a 5k thumbnail representation of it?

    Your camera app should have a setting that allows you to disable geo tagging

    Is location data usually stripped when you upload a picture to facebook?

    No idea, but given FB's insatiable appetite for your personal information, I'd be absolutely gobsmacked if it was :D
