Facing A Problem In FaceBook

HELP!! I NEED SOMEBODY.... HELP!!! *singing the Beatle's 1960's song* but I guess not many of us know this song... hahahaa... Out of the many blogs I came across, only a few are in the same "decade" as myself...

Ok, back to my topic.... I really need HELP from Facebook experts.... Pakar Mukabuku, sila tunjuk ajar...

Each time I put up a post in my FB, it shows my wrong locality, Kuala Lumpur. I am not in or near Kuala Lumpur so can someone tell me why it comes out like that? Can you teach me how to delete this location? How do I disable it? At present it comes out like this below...

· · 11 hours ago near Kuala Lumpur

I have tried here and there... go profile, go info, go here and there... till I am lost in my own Facebook... I didn't realise this until a few friends asked me why I was in KL when I am in Ipoh all the time... Funny geh...

Well, I really hope some FB experts can help me to disable the locality...

Thank you in advance!!

Solution achieved from Mr. G...
Go to your status bar, put your cursor there...and instantly the location appears at the bottom beside the "like"... if it shows Kuala Lumpur or what, just click the (x) besides it... sort of disabling it.. that is all.... So Easy, right??

Thanks again, Mr. G...

  2. Don't give a damn. Once I was near Tatau (a rural town on the way to Bintulu)...and now I'm near Kuching. Don't think anybody's bothered - your friends would know who and where you are.

    Watch out with those where you tell people where you are - I hear crooks use those to trace your whereabouts and rob or kidnap you. Like ChrisAu, always breakfast at the same place and he announces it on Facebook - easy target, that one.

  3. P.S.
    ...but I don't think anybody would want to kidnap him. Blerk!!! Hahahahaha!!!!

  4. Actually it is a good thing you just ignore it. If any pervert or stalker wanna hunt you , at least they will go to wrong place... Heheh. Your true friends will know where you are. Like stp said, don't give a damn.

  5. Irene... I think it would be unwise... stalker may go to the wrong place, but what if someone knows her address and tries to rob her house when thinking she's not at home? If betul betul not at home, it's okay, at least only barang hilang, but what if they get vicious and have weapons and threatens her and her entire family? I dunno... I would not want that thing to happen, especially if I have children! Better be safe than sorry. just my two cents... but if people out there dun gv a damn about their privacy and security, why should I care, right? Their lives, their problems. I'm just a paranoid, as they say.
