Here's a link to a Facebook Help page, and you can get info about mobile posts if you follow the "change or remove your location from mobile posts" link on that page.

You can turn off your location services directly from your phone.

I don't know what kind of phone you have but here's the instructions for the Iphone:

-To turn off location services
-Go to your iphone settings,
-Privacy,
-Location services,
-select OFF for Facebook.

If you have previously checked-in to a location then when you do a status update on Facebook it will use that location. If that's the case then you will need to follow the instructions above:

"To remove your location, tap the  icon. At the bottom of the list, tap the 'x' next to your current city."
