The Ketchikan Daily News reports that after almost a year of complaints, the social media giant has fixed a glitch that listed updates geotagged to Ketchikan as “Ketchikan, Washington.”

A similar problem occurred on Wikipedia.

Earlier this week, a Facebook spokeswoman said the issue was fixed. The problem cropped up in April, but the official declined to provide more details.
