Today:- New York, Jan 1 – Some Facebook users were left confused when the social networking site congratulated them on 46 years of friendship with other users.

This happened due to a strange yet interesting bug. Facebook is not even 15 years old and some users, who saw this message, are far younger than 46 years of age, The Verge reported on Friday.

The report said Facebook has not disclosed the culprit, but said that it is aware of the issue.

“We have identified this bug and the team is fixing it now so everyone can ring in 2016 feeling young again,” a company spokesperson said.

The report said that the bug might be due to Unix epoch. Facebook did not confirm it.

Many of the world’s servers run on Unix — an operating system (OS) that keeps time by counting up from zero at one-second intervals.

The date on which clock began happens to be on January 1, 1970, at midnight Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) or 46 years ago. This is known as the epoch.

Every second from that point on is known as epoch time, and this is why some gadgets mysteriously switch to December 31, 1969.

  4. What a highly descriptive and well written article. I simply have to tell you that your pages are totally awesome. Marvelous! Wow, that is a really good way of thinking about it! I love your write ups however, I do not read well. Do you have you tube videos on the topic?

  5. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100 certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  6. Would you mind basically if I mention any of your current articles or reviews on condition that I provide you with credit not to mention article sources returning to your web blog? My web sites is within the exact same area of interest as your site and my subscribers would certainly gain from several of the additional info you actually offer on this site. Please make sure to tell me if this is okay for you. Take care!

  7. I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours lately, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web will be much more helpful than ever before.

  8. This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!

  9. I’ll right away grab your rss as I can’t find your e-mail subscription link or e-newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Kindly let me know in order that I could subscribe. Thanks.

  10. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
