“Oven time”? Very few viewers of the WDR “local time” can imagine anything under this title. But the Facebook pages of the WDR program, which is known from TV and radio and has been extended to social media, are suddenly called that.
But that’s not the intention, according to the broadcaster. “Dear community, of course we’re not called Oven Time, we’re still your local time!” It says in a message to the user. Facebook made a big mistake when changing its name. According to those responsible for WDR, they are working flat out on a solution and the return to the usual name. “Unfortunately, it’s not going as quickly as we had imagined.”
WDR user cynical about “local time”: “Was your intern at work there?”
Despite the explanation, users are annoyed. One fears the site has been hacked. Another takes refuge in cynicism. “If only local time Cologne were there now… but Oven time? Was that your intern at work or some other prankster?”
The location information is also affected by the error, write the site maintainers. “Soon you will get the best stories from your region here again. Please be patient with us a little longer.” On Friday afternoon, the patience was worth it – the error was reversed.
