I'm sure some of you have noticed this by now, but I did a search and didn't find anything on it. Have you noticed that when somebody posts to Facebook from Cincinnati it says "from near Clifton" rather than the actual location?

It gets better: if you click the neighborhood, you'll bet taken to the page for "Clifton, OH," that small village of 152 people 60 miles outside of Cincinnati.

Some people have actually petitioned Facebook to stop that, which is interesting. It makes sense that if you have an investment in your area and want people to see where you are that you don't want to be listed as in a different part of the state in a hamlet.

Here's a link, accompanied by my favorite map of Cincinnati: Petition to Facebook: Cincinnati is Not Clifton.

Maybe this explains how Clifton mysteriously travels around the uptown area so every college student can live there. :-p

I envy people with so much time on their hands.
