3 day public transport pass

I see that you can buy a 3-day pass for public transport in Brussels. Does anyone know what "3 days" means in that context? Is it valid from when you first buy or first use it? Is the period of validity 72 hours or does it work in whole days (so for example, if you bought one at 4 pm on a Monday afternoon, would it expire at the end of Wednesday or at 4 pm on Thursday?)

Thanks

According to http://www.stib.be/3-dagen-jours.html?l=en "On the day of validation this ticket allows an unlimited number of journeys on the entire public transport network of the STIB", that means 3 (calendar) days and not 72 hours

As has been said, it's 3 consecutive calendar days (€9.50 or €9.20 with MOBIB card): note, however, that this is already worth it if you are taking 2 journeys on the first day, since this would cost a minimum of €3.20 (with MOBIB) anyway. But if that was a Monday, you can then use it on Tuesday and Wednesday and it expires at midnight on Wednesday.
