How to Create a Hometown on Facebook

Facebook's Hometown category in the personal profile is dependent on a pre-populated list that auto-fills based on the text you enter in the field. There is no functionality to edit the field aside from the pre-defined towns, so if your hometown is not in the listing, you must choose a nearby location. Create a new hometown in the list by submitting the proper request to Facebook asking for a modification.
