Facebook app always showing location?

No, this is what it shows. Doesn't say lives in. I mean on the actual facebook app. Not messenger. It only shows what city I'm in and always updates wherever I'm at. Why doesn't it just say what city I live in?


took some parts out of this pic for privacy btw.

I see OP is with TMO. I don't have FB on the phone, but can adjust tracking. Unless something from Samsung has a connection somewhere. Have you followed anything on FB that has an app? How about weather? If you have updated hour by hour weather notifications, that would track you all over for the right forecast.

Verizon is purportedly tracking users - selling ads?
Twitter is using it.
