There is a problem with Facebook pages - dragging map and pointing your new address. I see a lot of people posting about this, but I wanted to know if there's anything we can do from here. I mean I added our business location here in OpenStreetMap as well, but still cannot manage to change the location pin! There must be a way to overcome this situation?

With regard to Facebook - no we (in OSM) can't do anything about it. If you have a problem with Facebook, or one of their other products such as Instagram or WhatsApp, you'll need to talk to Facebook about it. I'm from OSM's Data Working Group, and we get lots of questions and complaints about Facebook showing data that it shouldn't or not showing data that it should. We can't help with any of that.

All that said, if the thing that you are trying to add to OpenStreetMap is something that's verifiable (a bricks-and-mortar shop, office, or similar), then we will be able to help with that, but you will need to provide more details about what you are actually trying to do. Go to, zoom in on the place of interest, paste the URL as a comment to your question, and explain in more detail what you are actually trying to do.

I already did it actually, but it didn't help me with Facebook, and I do not know from where I could check if I successfully added our company to the map.
