According to a post by the Mirror, anyone can easily “predict the future” by using this simple technique:

“All you have to do is write a status on your wall as usual. But before posting, select the clock icon and set the date – which can be any time in the past (or you can schedule it for the future.)”

To do the same trick, all you have to do is to write a status and then set the date.
