While working on one of the forum project, I had to print the timestamp of a topic in format â€œN Seconds agoâ€ or â€œX minutes agoâ€.! The Web 2.0 world have changed the way these dates are displayed. The days are gone when the timestamps were displayed like â€œ12 Jan 2003 10:50 pmâ€!!! A paradigm shift have changed the world to more â€œLiveâ€ stream based systems. Now the Web pages are not just data wrapped in HTML, but they have became more real with realtime interaction between people. And thus the timestamps also got changed to â€œ2 mins agoâ€, â€œ5 hours agoâ€ like formats. This identify more lively the streams and you can visualize them as events happened just minutes ago.
