Facebook Trying to Resolve Glitch Shows Friendship for Over 46 Years
You know that person you met at the nearest coffee shop and just got a friend request from them? Kudos! You now have friendship which is 46 years old, according to Facebook. Yes, it seems that the social network has gone crazy and now found that everyone has friends for 46 years from today. If you woke up to a notification that you and someone have been friend for 46 years, you are not alone. Due to this glitch, hundreds of friendship inception dates have been edited in Facebook to 31st December, 1969.
Well, this is not a random date. The UNIX systems were started on January 1, 1970 GMT, through which all the time-tracking data has been based with the software. If the system is reset to 1970 GMT’s first minute, the date automatically appears as 31st December, 1969 in the US. However, Facebook announced that they are working to resolve the issue.
