    This is a pretty big deal, actually.

    I live and work in Central Square, Lynn.

    My iPhone constantly thinks I'm in Central Square, Cambridge.

    Both are in Massachusetts, and close by the standards of those in other states, but necessarily to the thinking of local folk.

    It used to know I was in Lynn, but for some reason now, everything I upload or post on facebook says Cambridge as the locale.

    Can I just manually change it already? Is the the FB app maybe? Either way..

    Quickest way to see if its the iPhone misidentifying the location is to pull up Maps and see where it puts the blue dot. Try going into Settings->Location Services and toggling it off and back on for FaceBook.
