A New Facebook Feature Needs a New Word

A New Facebook Feature Needs a New Word

A new Facebook feature needs a new word. At least they call it a feature. Facebook has recently started automatically adding location information to new updates.  I find myself going through this cycle:

  1. Post my brilliant comment, link, or image.
  2. Notice that Facebook has added “near <name of city>”
  3. Delete post
  4. Post brilliant comment again, remembering to remove location information this time around.
We need a word to describe this cycle.  My lovely wife proposed either De-Geo or Dis-Locate.  You may vote below.  (I am using the WordPress Simple Survey plugin which is about as easy to use as you can imagine._

      This is a NICE TO HAVE application, but its craietnly not a REQUIRED TO HAVE . I find it NICE TO HAVE in case of bad weather, or long road trip, and want to let someone else know my exact location Just in case . This is about the only time I’d ever turn the software on, not because of privacy concerns, but, because I don’t feel it necessary to use the bandwidth (Since I have to pay for it Not unlimited) to let people know I’m at work for 12 hours. Due to my being with Rogers, I am REQUIRED to have the appropriate data plan for this software to work at all.
