Facebook Thinks That All Months Have Only 30 Days

This may be a temporary problem, but it has been confirmed by several people including ourselves: as of this moment, you can't set your day of birth to the 31st of any month in Facebook.

The social network thinks that January, March, May, July, August, October, and December only have 30 days.

As far as we can tell, there's no solution for this. So, if you are one of the five people who has never signed up for a Facebook account and was born on the 31st of any of those months, you are out of luck. [Thanks Anna Holmes!]


    And people bought shares in this bunch why?

    If its on facebook then it must be true

    It's because Facebook wants to start a new calendar year in which there is an entire extra WEEK. I know, crazy right but this is all fact: Mark Zuckerberg has used his money and influence to suggest to Congress that instead of having the 31st of Jan, March, May, July, Aug, Oct or December, there will be a week at the end of the year known as Zucktober, which only lasts a week. It's a celebration of moving from one year to the next but it only happens online and no one is allowed to leave their house. In this one week of Zucktober, relationship statuses will change, baby photos will be uploaded and general dissent will reign supreme in the Facebook-verse. If you are not logged in, you will be removed from your house in the dead of night and never heard of again.

    Yep, Facebook is taking over.

    Sorry, but that's bullshit. I am a 31st'er. No problems here.

      Probably just another Mac OS X bu... err I mean undocumented feature...

        It might be only be if you are signing up for a new account, those of us who have already signed up with their date being the 31st may be unaffected.

        Anyone tried creating a new facebook account?

      Guaranteed its an error with that single combobox on that single page... Not a site wide error.
