Dear Facebook, Australia is a big place

I’ve only just joined Facebook, following a contact from an old friend in the UK. But like Jon Udell and Euan, one of my first observations was about the limited categories on offer to explain how I know someone. The other one is that the whole of Australia gets lumped under the “Australia” network while Canada, the UK and the US get to pick a city. Now, Australia might not have the population but Perth is a b****y long way from Wollongong, mate.

I suppose it could be worse, they might think Australia and New Zealand are the same or that Canberra is the capital of Austria. Don’t laugh, it has happened…
