Facebook has unfortunately had a significant outage and was down for many hours.

During an emergency like the Canterbury or Westport floods, you would have been out of the loop as Civil Defence and councils use Facebook heavily.

Fortunately Lert Info emergency alerts aren't affected when Facebook goes down because we have a closed system. It performed perfectly with 6 alerts sent during today's outage.

Facebook outages are frequent, and sometime over an hour. This is a key reason why we no longer use it for alerts. Our subscribers expect to be informed in an emergency, but people will not get information using Facebook. This  includes Civil Defence, Councils, NZTA etc.  Also, you will never see EVERY post from whoever you follow. You will get every alerts we send to you.

Because we use 1000's  of sources outside Facebook including all our subscribers, we can still gather and send alerts and news.
