    Like I said, it's not a Nexus thing as I've tried with my OG Droid via Wifi with the same results. If you think of anything, just let me know

    So it's definitely the Facebook for Android app, every time you open the app it adds another session. I had 10 when I went to look. That's really poor work on the app developers part, should close or expire those sessions. Mine show's me in Port Hueneme, which is almost 200 miles south, probably has to do with the locations of Verizon's data centers or ???

    Nothing Nefarious, just poor programming!

    The phone is a Linux based device, and as for it showing up that it's in Charlotte, it might be the hub or the connection. When I went to North Carolina, it showed me that I was logging in from Florida. I used to live there so I freaked out thinking one of my friends got hold of my password. Nope. All's well. I changed my password and it still happens. I'm not too worried about it.

    I've tried on my Wifi only phone and it still happens so Verizon's out.

    I understand you're frustration, we're all just trying to help... I'm almost to the point of bailing on facebook altogether, if it weren't for my Children and Grandbabies, I probably would

    Sorry, I wasn't snapping at anyone here. Just a flyby comment of random frustration. I've been thinking of bailing too with this new Timeline BS rolling out. I wish I could get more people to join on Google+

    No worries, I feel your pain, unfortunately Google + isn't likely to gain the acceptance facebook has... only my geek friends use it

    It just needs a boost...it has to get bad enough on Facebook (like the MySpace downfall). I rarely use it because there's only 10 friends that are connected. I keep trying to promote though because it does have some excellent features.
