    everytime I post something via the iphone version of facebook's website, the timestamp is always way earlier than the actual time. Is there some way to change my time zone or something like that?

    I'd say that the facebook app is totally f'ed up. It's been doing this for the past week or so, especially if you check the 'status updates' tab- they all show the same time.

    Totally unstable and unreliable as is.

    I can speak for my three iPhone owning friends and myself. We all have the same problem.

    The time on mine has always been messed up with every revision of their app that I have seen, ever since their app release. It just seems to be a bug that they can't work out.

    Timestamps on 2.0 have ALWAYS been b0rked. The dev is already aware of the issue and you can post all other bugs/suggestions here.

    It is indeed annoying. I love how at random times it will show updates from 2 months ago as the most recent. It's such a great looking application though.

    I actually prefer the iPhone-optimized website to the application. It seems to get the times right, and you can write messages/wall posts in landscape mode.

    And why doesn't the App or the iPhone site support events properly?

    I forgot about the iPhone-optimized website. Maybe I'll give that a try for the next few days- or until the devs actually fix the bugs. I'm sick of seeing "just a moment ago" for every single status update.

    Really simple fix - change iPhone time settings to 'set automatically' that fixed it for me!!!

    Did you really go hunting down a 4 year old post in order to post a solution that was probably figured out years ago? The amount of people bumping years old threads is getting out of hand lately.
