Facebook - Current City

Ugh.  So, I moved to a tiny city in the middle of an Indian Reservation.  I'd like for my FaceBook profile to indicate this.  However, when I type Salamanca, NY (or New York, or New York, United States) into my current city, it won't save.  It just comes back blank.  Somehow I wound up with my current city as Salamanca, Spain for a few days.  Other people have Salamanca as their current city, as you can see here and here.  What did they do right that I'm doing wrong?

I couldn't get mine to change, it seemed to not believe I'd move from San Antonio to a middle of nowhere podunk city... I eventually just typed in my city and stopped trying... I just hid my current city so it wouldn't show the wrong one... and eventually it updated to the right city itself *shrug*

How long did it take to "fix itself"?  Also, did your new city show in the stupid suggested drop down cities that have Facebook links?  My old one did, I didn't have to type it all in, just select it.  My new one does not, even though, as I showed in my opening post, FailBook clearly has my new city in their links.  I'm confuzzled as usual.

No, it didn't show in the drop down, but San Antonio did... I originally was typing a smart-a** name for a city, and when it didn't show up I typed in my real one.. saved it, but it still showed my old one... did it once or twice more, and finally gave up, hid it, and left it...

I'm not sure how long exactly it took... coulda been a few days, could have been weeks... I use tweetdeck to update, so I rarely login to facebook's web page... I just remember noticing eventually that it had changed... (I knew that it *had* to be possible, since other people around here had it as their city, and I think *that's* what really bothered me the most, since I felt like I had to be doing something wrong).. the fact it changed on it's own made me feel like less of an eTard... it's nice to know that sometimes it's not your fault...

Seems that our wannabe cities (at least mine's a wannabe) don't get much credit for existing, if you can call it that...

My new one isn't in the drop down, but like I said, others are using it, and it has a FaceBook page to link to.  Aguh! (new word, my nephew made it up, it means, "I'm frustrated")  That's the part that's making me crazy.  I know it exists in FailBook's world, it just won't let ME have it.  Aguh.

Mine was the same, just give it time... see if it changes in a few days.

 A few days?  It's been 3 weeks...

Solved it! because I'm awesome.

Go to Edit Profile... and on the left side, instead of basic information, click on Contact Information... Enter your city there. (I changed mine to the Salamanca, NY to test)...

Save it and check to see if your current city updated... (I didn't do this part, but if it fixes it at this point, then you don't have to do the next)

If not, go type it in the basic information area as you did in the contact information area... hit enter so it'll save (since you can't select from a non existent drop down)... then check..

Then come back here and tell me you lurv me.

 Nope.  It's there under my contact info, has been since I got here, but still not under Current City.  You're on my friends list, take a look...

You have your hometown showing instead of your current city...
