Remember the millennium bog  computers, etc. would go haywire when we entered 2000? It didn't happen. I suspect that by 9999, the world will figure it out.

Thanks. 9999 = Nine thousand nine hundred and ninety nine. 31129999 is the Last day of the Year 9999. Add one more day, the new year starts which is the beginning of new century 10000. Now 10000 is a five digit number. Will the computer systems fail on 010110000? Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar

The "year variable" will need to be increased from size 4 to size 5. That's a 25% increase. May slow down Facebook's response time.
