has added a new feature to its app that shows you a weather forecast based on your location. It's a neat feature to have and I tried it out for the first time this morning since we were on a weekend holiday and at a new location. To my surprise I noticed that at 8am local time Facebook
was showing the forecast as 2am. No time zone adjustment! That's a big whoops and I'm surprised it was not caught before making this feature publicly available. Even though the displayed times are incorrect, the actual forecast looks to be showing up right.
To access the weather forecast you have to open Facebook's
menu (pressing the three horizontal bars icon) and then scroll down to 'Weather'
. I also had to press 'See more...'
before the weather option was revealed.
