How to Create a Hometown on Facebook

By Tara Kimball

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.

Step 1

Click the "Help" link on the bottom right corner of the screen.

Step 2

Click the "Give Feedback" link. Click Profile in the Facebook Features section.

Step 3

Type "Add Hometown" in the Suggestion field. Enter the name of the hometown with your request to add it to the list in the More Details section. Click "Submit."
