This week I discovered Hyper Alerts. A big thanks to Mari Smith for pointing it out on her blog.

Hyper Alerts is a little tool for Facebook Pages that solves a big social media problem. When someone posts on you Page, you only know about it if you go to you Page and look for updates. The kicker here is you have to remember to go look.

Hyper alerts solves that problem. They send you an email of your Page on a regular basis. Or whenever there’s a new post or comment. Honestly, it’s genius. Installation was a snap. And its really set-up, not installation. All I had to do was give them my Facebook URL and tell them how often I wanted the alert. Simple as that.

Ok, if you don’t check email, you still have a problem. That’s a whole different thing. And right now there’s no option for a text message to be sent. But, I love that idea.

Hyper Alerts is in public beta, so expect some glitches. For instance right now they are migrating servers, so you can’t set up “whenever there’s a new post” as an alert. But that’s part of success.

I’ll keep you posted on how well it works.
