# How long is a week ago?

Just finding it curious that one entry says 7 days ago, and another says 1 week ago, when the latter is 15 days ago.

In overview ,contents more than seven days are shown in week time frame.

For example Action drop down to post questions is showing as a week ago .It was posted on Oct 2nd .14 days ago from today .It is between a week and 2 week so it is showing as a week ago .

Hmm, the dates all say October 1 to me, and I'm October 16.  I guess they are not GMT?

But that should be two weeks ago. Or maybe previous week (which is slightly different and need to consider the start of the week).
A week ago means up to 7 days until now. "Ago" typically is followed by a cause/action. But not here. Therefore I would read it as timeframe.

Unless there is some reference which makes it a point in time. As in "more than a week ago" (~before last week) and "no more than a week ago" (~last week).

But I'm not a native speaker. So opinions about it might differ.

Well, "A week ago" would usually mean anything from 7-13 days ago.  When it's 14 days ago it becomes 2 weeks ago.

Anything from now backwards would just be 1 day ago (yesterday), 2 days ago, 3 days ago etc. until you get to 7 and then that's the "Week ago"
