It’s the 1st of the month, so Facebook Timeline stops updating

I know I’m not alone on this, as I have heard from two other Facebook friends, but Facebook has trouble getting to a new month with Timeline.
   Ever since my Facebook went to November 1, Timeline stopped updating. What rests there is the last post of October 31.
   Earlier today, I could still have a look at November entries by forcing the URL, but that eventually stopped working, too.
   There’s no November entry in the month links at the top right-hand corner, either.
   The only way I can see my Facebook entries is in the full history. Yet no one seems to have reported this bug, which only happens on the 1st of the month. Looks like I’ll have to.

PS.: Facebook Timeline finally made it to November, presumably because the US west coast got there. I assume Facebook is unaware that there are a lot of time zones ahead of Pacific time?

  1. Understood, Jack.

    I think the time zones throughout Oceania are rather neglected by many sites. Generally speaking, I do see some bias from place to place based on the sites home time zone and upon its home culture. I think the heaviest skews are towards US EST and UK GMT. The presence of Silicon Valley seems to bring PST a close third, but again, I expect UK GMT to pull more ahead if the “Silicon Roundabout” in London really takes off.

    Facebook is universal enough, however, that the Zuckerbergs have no real excuse.

  2. I’m still waiting for some tagged photos and a check-in to appear, probably again because of PST (I assume you have “fallen back”?). It really does seem silly—if Facebook is capable of displaying times in NZDT, then it should update on the 1st of the month here just as anywhere else. It would, logically, be more work for Facebook to demand that the planet waits for the 1st in California just to see their own posts and photographs appear.
