hootsuite is down


Attention! HootSuite is down for all users.

When I first realized “the situation” (yes, call me dramatic, but I consider this to be a situation) this morning, I had to ask myself what to do next.

First of all, don’t panic. It’s not the end of the world (that we know of…). After you get over the initial shock, here are some HootSuite alternatives to consider:

Go back to basics

Why not use the original tools? Post a post on Facebook. Tweet using Twitter.

Broaden your horizons

There are other social media management tools out there. Take a look at Buffer, for example.

Engage in person

Use the outage as an opportunity to share information with others face-to-face. Interesting concept, right?


We’d love to hear from you. When tools like HootSuite fail, what’s your backup plan?
