function time_ago($time)
{
$periods = array(“second”, “minute”, “hour”, “day”, “week”, “month”, “year”, “decade”);
$lengths = array(“60″,”60″,”24″,”7″,”4.35″,”12″,”10”);

$now = time();

$difference = $now – $time;
$tense = “ago”;

for($j = 0; $difference >= $lengths[$j] && $j < count($lengths)-1; $j++) {
$difference /= $lengths[$j];
}

$difference = round($difference);

if($difference != 1) {
$periods[$j].= “s”;
}
return “$difference $periods[$j] ago”;
}
$time = strtotime(your date);
echo time_ago($time);
