Facebook Upsets Soggy Brits by Telling Them it's Summer

By Angela Chen on at

Not that anybody needed a Facebook “it’s summer” reminder to begin with, but people are doubly annoyed that they got a certain greeting when it’s pouring with rain outside.

Facebook apparently showed everyone the cheery summer graphic (“Hello sun — it’s been a while”) without checking the weather forecast. While the weather in the company’s offices over in California may merit large beach umbrellas, nobody over here is thinking of having a beach day.

Facebook doesn’t need to rub it in, especially when this month might be the wettest on record. Sorry, guys. And as for Facebook—at least this isn’t as bad as when it told Filipinos their country was at war. [The Telegraph]
