  • Publication number: 20230319370
    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.
