To recognize the existence of the country of South Sudan

      Juba, South Sudan

South Sudan is a country that has already been in existence since July of 2011. Yet, Facebook is still not allowing people to list it as their place of residence. If someone says they are from Juba, it still lists Juba as being part of Sudan. How would you feel if it was your country? Also, it is impeding commerce for companies in South Sudan who want to target South Sudan customers via Facebook Ads. There is no reason why this should be the case. It seems that Facebook doesn't want to do their part in the development of one of the worlds least developed countries. This needs to change. Right away.

      South Sudan is a full sovereign state since the 9th of July 2011 therefore facebook must recognize that accordingly without any impede; by allowing people from that country to list themselves as their place of residence.
