Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hello; Sorry if this has been asked before. I have a group on Facebook that I would like to allow users input their location into a map. There have been folks asking to find other group members near their location for a meet-up. Is this something that can be done on this platform?

Thanks in advance for your time Respectfully Rob

I use the share button and add a marker for meeting points for a walking group. Here is an example

alt text

and this is the short link for the above illustration. https://osm.org/go/eu68UYVZ--?m=

Thanks for the answer! So I should be able to share the link & users will be able to add a marker? Do you know if there is a limitation to the quantity of markers? Thanks again for your help!

Only one marker for each link. But perhaps each user could send their link to you to send to the others in the group or to each other. I hope that is of use.
