Without doubt, Facebook could be easily called as the King of Social networking websites. But like many other service, Facebook has bugs and sometimes the service becomes unavailable. Do you know that you can post your status messages, when Facebook is down? Thanks to Sara @ Mashable, who has listed four options that allows you to post on Facebook, even when the main website is down.
Option 1: Use Facebook app
Do you own a smartphone? Then use Facebook application. Sometimes users were able to access Facebook through its app, even when the Facebook’s main servers are down. Sara also says, this method may not be the reliable one, but you might be one among others gaining access to Facebook, when the servers are down.
Option 2: Hootsuite
Hootsuite is one of the social media management application that allows users to manage and measure their social networks. The users can connect multiple social media accounts, post messages remotely and can also schedule updates. During the latest Facebook crash, few users where able to post their status messages and share links through Hootsuite. But you cannot use “Like” button and few other Facebook functionalities.
Option 3: Use SproutSocial
Like Hootsuite, SproutSocial is a social media management platform that costs $39 per month. The application allows you to post messages remotely. It also has many features like Hootsuite.
Option 4: Using Facebook API
You can use Facebook API to remotely access social media functions; this includes commenting on posts and sharing. Writing a piece of code can allow you to remotely posts on Facebook via another website or application.
