BEFORE you post the status - that detail was left off the last answer. I think that will do the trick. If not, I'll correct this post. Click on the little "x" next to the city name to remove the location tag and it won't be added next time you update till you specially add the location yourself. After logout/login, the setting persists

Easiest process was to go to Google Bookmarks, copy each of the starred items, and paste it to a note or Word doc. Log out of the Google account and log into the new Google account. Go to Google Maps. Paste each link from your doc into Google maps one by one and star each item as you go. Took me 5 minutes to do the 20 or so that I had. Very easy.

This answer was close, go to Facebook Privacy Settings, Edit Settings, How Tags Work. Then click on Tag Review. You'll then need to manually review any time someone tags you, but it lets you decline location tags (as well as pics and posts if that's to your liking).

The option is still in Blogger-in-Draft (blue-logo blogger in the picture you've quoted), it hasn't been released to production Blogger as yet. Tools that are in BID sometimes get withdrawn and then re-instated, as part of the process of pre-production testing. That's just one of the disadvantages of using BID.

Seeing that there's no convinient way of doing this provided by Google, I've created a tiny online app for export of your starred locations: http://gexport.somee.com/ It's very primitive, but it does the job. (credits to endolith for the idea of implementation).

What URL are you using to access Google Maps? The default location would seem to be dependent on the Google Maps URL, or rather the "Top Level Domain" (TLD). For example, If I go to https://www.google.com/maps I see the US. If I go to .co.uk I see the UK. If I go to .co.id, I see Indonesia. .com.au - Australia, etc. Incidentally, if I visit .com (from ...

Google+ Stories only let you select locations they suggest. You can send feedback to Google+ if you would like to see that changed.

I just did this and it works! If you are getting this error message when you edit your address: "We couldn't determine the location from the provided address. Make sure to enter a valid address."

Although Facebook provides a way to add a location hyperlink to a post, even without that your friends can still inadvertently share your location just as part of plain text or photos. For example if a friend tags you in a photo at some recognizable location then your location is apparent even though there is no location hyperlink. They could also tag you ...

I figured out a way to export your starred locations. Go to your account settings Click on the section titled "Data Tools" Click Select data to download "Create an Archive" Check "Bookmarks" "Create Archive" Download and you're done! You'll get an HTML file with all the locations as addresses that are linked to the Google Maps.

When using mobile.twitter.com from any mobile safari (on iOS devices) you can choose to use your exact location, or just the location of your nearest neighborhood. If your twitter client does not support this, try using the browser on your device.

No. The reason for this is that even a foreigner can buy stuff as a present for someone who is livinging at a place where the items could be sent to. And there is no way for Amazon to know where the items to ship before proceeding to checkout.
