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."
