you would want to show notification about some activity.... like this forum shows last post .. ago
you would have to capture date and time of that activity... for every post, capture post submit time...
when u want to display the time difference.... in database u can calculate difference in current time and last post time...
suppose u have simillar data for forum posts... u can use quesry like
select DTEEDIFF(second, post_submit_time, GETDATE()), DTEEDIFF(minute, post_submit_time, GETDATE()), DTEEDIFF(hour, post_submit_time, GETDATE()), DTEEDIFF(day, post_submit_time, GETDATE())
this will give u differnece in date value of post_submit_time column and current date.... second, minute etc in this query are datepart keywords... and gives u difference in seconds or minutes etc.
upon this, u can build a logic to get most relevant datepart value... like if difference is more than 60 seconds then use minute value etc.
hope this helps...

the date displayed to all users will be same irrespective of their location because C# and SQL Server both use current date time of server.

You can write a function like this:
static void StoreLastActionTime()
//store them to DB
Then put them to you method like button1_click method.
This will get user location date. DateTime Class always be used to handle this problem.
