Okay ladies, we鈥檙e going to set up a scenario for you that you might already know all too well: You鈥檙e scoping out that upcoming Bumble date on Instagram before this week鈥檚 meet-up. As you scroll down (probably too far down), you come across a photo of your date and their ex. Interesting. It鈥檚 from 138 weeks ago. BUT WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Math is hard. We get it. Thankfully Instagram has finally come to the same realization.


The photo sharing app recently unveiled a much-needed update that will now show you the exact date a user posted a photo (think March 14, 2015 as opposed to 52 weeks ago). Like the account swapping update, this is a feature that appears to be unveiling slowly across their user base. If you don鈥檛 see it right this second,聽you may need to keep a calculator handy for just a little while longer.

If you frequent the web version of Instagram, patience also appears to be key here. The social media platform used to display exact dates on the web, but changed it to a weekly count awhile back to stay so as to remain cohesive with the app. However, if they鈥檙e keeping with that idea, it鈥檚 looking as though they鈥檒l revert to their old system soon.

This is all great news, but please remember聽鈥 tap too hard, and you can still accidentally like those 230-week old photos (unless you鈥檙e using Instasnoop) and really, there鈥檚 no coming back from that.
