There is a location pin created by someone else on my property lines on Instagram. I do not want people share photos using that location. How do I remove it? Who should I contact?

You'll have to contact Instagram, we are not their customer service department.

To elaborate: It's extremely common to see incorrect location pins drawn over OpenStreetMap maps embedded in third-party sites. The map underneath is generated from OSM data, but the location of the pin is very often from entirely different data which neither OSM mappers nor the OSM organization can control.

Facebook (owner of Instagram) is notorious for this -- search for "facebook" here and you'll see dozens of similar problems.
