Country-wise tagging of community users
Can you consider tagging with geo-location it may need integration with google maps.

Most people I know consider geo tagging them as invasion of privacy. I don’t want to be tagged. People should have an option of what information they want to share.

Great feature to be used wisely and optionally :slight_smile:
