I am playing with a random opponent through facebook. Our avatars show and his was a sports team close to where I live. I asked if he was a fan and he responded with yes, I used to live in "x town" and have been throught "y town" (where I am) many times. This was first message I sent this person, I am wondering how he knew my location? Kind of weird or I am missing something.
Insight please?

Do you have location turned on, on your phone? When the rounds come up, it has a location under the photo of the person I'm playing, as well as a location under my photo. I mostly noticed it because it thinks I'm in a town about 30 minutes away for some very odd reason.

I noticed after the last update that when I start a game my city is now under my name.

Sorry, I missed the Facebook part. In that case, I'd guess it's pulling from your Facebook profile.

Maybe he was just guessing your town, since you were asking if him if he was a fan of the team from x town? I would have asked him how he knew what your town was.


Don't worry about the people in your past; there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Facebook is like jail. You sit around all day wasting time, writing on walls and if your not careful you'll get poked.

I play on my phone through Facebook. With the last Songpop update the cities now show under your name. You need to go into settings (those 2 little gear/wheel like things in the upper corner) then advanced settings and then turn off location displayed.

I didn't know they changed it & now put the location on facebook. The last time I played Song Pop, they didn't share any information at all about your opponent.

I laugh because it has showed two different cities for me, neither correct.
It will change for where I am during the day, but when I am home wrong city

I updated song pop and now I see where the location is being shown. Thanks for your help, I was a little creeped out..lol.
And thanks for telling me how to turn off location!
