Thanks for your question. There is a 'location' field in the user profile, but it's an optional field. It would be nice if it were more used - then you could see where someone is located when they mention products. Tough to force that, though. There is a way to grab the user's IP address and decode the country/city where they are posting from -- but that would be a much larger programming project to implement.
