HootSuite Recovers From Unexpected Downtime

By Andy Au | 3 years ago | 2 Comments

Last night, HootSuite and many other online services were affected by Amazon EC2 issues and experienced unexpected downtime. The outage duration lasted from 9:00pm – 1:00am PDT.

Scheduled messages due to go out during the downtime have not been delivered.

We recognize that this was an inconvenience and our team worked diligently late into the night so we could recover as quickly as possible.

And now if you could only get around Facebooks' apparent block of any page posts from HootSuite. Ever since Facebook rolled out it's own feature that allows pages to schedule posts, any post I make/schedule from HootSuite will show on the page timeline, but can not be seen from the newsfeed.

It seems to be yet another one of Facebooks' dirty tricks.

Please write a blog about the iPhone and iPad app. Why it's crashing and what you're doing about it. So people can find the answer here. See a lots of questions about it in my Hootsuite searchstream.
