      FACEBOOK UPDATES will limit what posts you will see.  One of the Facebook changes brought in over September is now affecting Lert and all others like Civil Defence, Metservice, Councils , and local community pages. If a post has a link that takes people away from the FB page, such as to their own websites, FB will reduced the number to "fans" that are shown the post.   What does that mean for you? You will see far fewer posts and more than likely, miss important information.   Unfortunetly you will never know when a post is made and whether you missed it.   For Lert Info, some of our posts are a prelude to important developing situations that may become alerts.   To ensure you see our news posts that are relevant to your location, we can now advise you through our free email alert service.   These push notifications ensure you hear about something newsworthy for your location. If you live in Palmerston North you won't hear about something in Christchurch.  There is a mix of items from other media plus an increasing number of exclusive stories.   This example shows a Thunderstorm Outlook that looks likely to become alerts.       This was a news item advising walking tracks were closed following a scrub fire in Dunedin     Register for our free email news advisories and you'll also get our actual alerts as well - for FREE.

    Over the years we have used Facebook to get news and information to you that completed our alert service. This may have been for advice of welfare centres opening during floods, travel delays for weather, infectious diseases, fruitfly, biohazards etc. but in news format not as alerts. Facebook unfortunately restricts delivery of posts and fewer people get them these days. In September they will be further restricted by more changes. There have also been other issues that cause us headaches. SOLUTION: We will migrate over to our dedicated news service. HOW IT WORKS: Everyone on our alert service Lert Info, inside a ringfenced area, will be advised there is a news article specific to their location. If you're interested you click the link and go to the full article, or else you can just ignore it.    These are not alerts but information that rounds out our service to make it more complete.  You can leave comments if you wish and you can share the articles with your friends with just a couple of clicks. You will need to register at Free Alert Service so we can get these articles to you. You'll also then get the alerts for free as well We look forward to keeping you much better informed.

    Increasingly, email is becoming tricky to use. Spam filters, blockers, lag time, servers down etc. etc. let alone the average 60mins plus it takes for someone to open their email. It doesn't bode well if there is an emergency. We found this excellent video which explains The Email Cycle . Down the track. we envisage dropping the email only service as it's just getting so tricky to use. Civil Defence regions have dropped it, but we have thousands and thousands of people to consider and so perseveared for the last two years.  The replacement will be so much better.
