What If you would like to hide or change your current location when you post a status update on Facebook.
There is a quick way of doing this
When you hover on top of the selected location, a cross will appear to the right as shown in image below
This way you can remove your current location while posting a status update. Sometimes the location is not detected for some reason and it appears after you post your message.
Check this screen shot below:
See that Place Icon. Just Click on that and leave the field blank. Hmm.. I guess that will hide you current location. But you can type whatever in that “Where are you” field, Facebook will not overwrite that.
So this is how you control the location setting in Facebook status updates.
I hope this helps
