Most social networks provide a historical timestamp to read as a human-readable string – such as 1 day ago, 3 weeks ago, 1 year, 5 months, and so on. The same application applies to future events or posts. The purpose of the string is to provide a general frame of time-reference and thus negating the need for any mental acrobatics. WordPress provides a default function called human_time_diff() that accomplishes this from within WordPress. It’s this function we’ve slightly modified for use in other PHP applications (outside of WP).
