Why did Instagram remove custom locations?

Have you noticed anything different about your Instagram account?

With the latest Instagram update 7.4 on both Android and iOS devices you can’t add custom locations to your Instagram photos.

I am pretty bummed that Instagram removed the ability to create your own custom locations and I am apparently not the only one according to these reviews:

Was I the only one that thought it was a clever way to create more engagement and show your followers a little bit more of your personality?

I think this has something to do with the fact that Instagram launched “places search” function to the update, according to the notes from the update:

Places search: Now that you can search by location, it’s easy to explore an exotic vacation destination or see what’s happening in your neighborhood.

It is clear that Instagram created this update so that users like you can easily search locations while removing the fake ones.
