“We’ve identified this bug and the team’s fixing it now so everyone can ring in 2016 feeling young again,” said Facebook spokeswoman Chelsea Kohler.

The speculation? That this is a fairly common bug involving the Unix operating system. Dec. 31, 1969 is the first to appear in time tracking software for Unix.
