    You go to edit personal info, click on cities where you have been and there is a X on the right hand side. click on the X and it will remove location from your map.

    How do you change what information shows up in the little summary box below your profile picture? For example, mine has my school, my relationship status and my hometown but I would rather it said my networks or birthday instead of relationship status? On my friends’ profiles they have other information but they don’t know how/why it’s set up this way?
