Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

A map appeared on my business facebook page but it shows the wrong (very very very wrong) location despite the address being correct and having the correct location on googlemaps.... I have tried to edit via facebook but it has not changed. I tried via OpenStreetMap but that is not working either..... Any ideas???

Clients are confused and lost.

Did you try to drag the map on Facebook to reposition the marker location?

Yes, I tried over and over again moving the map on facebook but the change is not being saved. The facebook is facebook.com/yoga.phnompenh the written address is correct....39, street 21, tonle bassac. behind wat svay popey but the map shows us on highway 2 outside the city....

Hi have a look here on the only original OSM map, http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/11.48697/104.94554 The only business in that area on OSM is "Thy Cheng" a DIY shop, without a tag or node, it has been added to the contour of the building. The end of this story is that a third party has made a mistake. Please use the link in the right low corner and push the button "Here we Go" if I’m right. Good luck. PPs please or use your OSM account to map and tag your business on the OSM map by following basic rules for tagging and adding nodes, https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features. Finding the right building should be easy, the buildings look quit visible in editing mode. Use Potlach 2 or ID.
