Facebook doesn't like that Effin town

A woman from Effin, Ireland, (in Limerick County, no less) says Facebook won't let her set it as her hometown. I'm pretty sure the town's actual chief export is giggles.

From BBC News:

One woman from Effin in County Limerick in the Irish Republic has so far been unable to add the village name to the 'home place' section of her Facebook profile.

Ann Marie Kennedy, who works in the department of nursing and midwifery at the University of Limerick, has now started an online campaign to to get Effin recognised.

"I was born and raised in Effin and my family come from here," she said.

"There's a great community spirit. Our best known export is Effin cheese.

"It's a great little parish. I'd just like to put down (on Facebook), because I'm from Effin, and so would so many Effin people around the world, that they're from Effin.

"But Facebook won't let it because they think it's obscene or offensive," she added.
