For many small businesses and entrepreneurs, email is at once a blessing and a curse. It's a great way to communicate with clients and keep a record of conversations, but there are challenges. Traditional email clients — the program you would use to check email — installed on your computer and made checking email remotely a challenge. And for those that get more than 2 emails a day, how do you organize them all?
HootSuite has updated their extension today making it twice as fast as before. They've also redesigned the user interface to give it a new look with larger, bolder buttons so that it's even easier to share or schedule your posts.
Starting early this morning, HootSuite users began noticing an inability to access their HootSuite dashboard. At 6:40am PST, HootSuite developers began working on the issue and started tracking and reporting on the issue online.
While scheduled messages and RSS feeds were unaffected, it was clear that most users were unable to access the dashboard and therefore unable to send new status updates or monitor accounts.
