  • Publication number: 20210281897
    Abstract: Method for generating media content items based on location information starts with the server system receiving from a first computing device an electronic communication including location information from a location sensor coupled to the first client computing device. Server system then determines a current activity of a first user of the first client computing device based on the location information; generating a media content item including a map display based on the location information and at least one of: (i) an avatar of the first user engaged in the current activity, (ii) a status message associated with the current activity of the first user, or (iii) a status message associated with a map location on the map display. Server system then causes the media content item to be displayed on a display screen of at least one of a plurality of client computing devices. Other embodiments are described herein.

  • Publication number: 20210274265
    Abstract: Method of generating customized graphics based on location information includes processor receiving location information including location of first client device. Processor causes a status interface to be displayed on the first client device that includes locations that are within a predetermined distance from the first client device. Processor receives a selection from the first client device of the first location via the status interface and stores the first location in a location database associated with the first user. Location database includes: locations previously selected by the first client device via the status interface, locations associated with media content items received from the first client device, or locations associated with the location information received from the first client device. Processor generates a country selectable item, a city selectable item, and timeline selectable items and causes passport interface to be displayed on the first client device.
