 Not sure if this trac ticket should be re-opened, but I'm experiencing the
 same problem. In my case, the Activity time seen via WP Admin is also 5
 hours ahead of local time. But, I think being 5 hours ahead is only due to
 my timezone being GMT -5 (EST). i.e. It seems like the GMT time from the
 Activity Record in the DB is being used directly rather than being
 converted to local time.

 Also, in my case (different than original trac ticket) the regular
 Activity Stream updates (activity/) are not correct either - but the
 problem is different!  The "user posted an update <n days/minutes/seconds>
 ago" is 5 hours '''behind''' local time. i.e. almost as if the conversion
 from GMT to local time is being done twice to -10 (?).

 A complete overview of the what I've observed is already here:


 WP: 3.4.2
 BP: 1.6.1

 Please let me know how to proceed.
