[UPDATE]

We are making good progress. Thank you for your patience.

NOTE: We have moved content items to a hold status which had a strict time based publishing setting to be enforced during the outage.  This includes scheduled items as well as optimized items with a strict must send setting.

As a precaution, we included strict time based messages up to 11am eastern time tomorrow morning in the group placed on hold to allow us to properly inspect and test all systems.

We expect optimized and immediate publishing to be operational again shortly.  Optimized messages and those with time based settings after 11am were not placed on hold and will be handled as normal.

We will keep you updated.

[OUTAGE NOTICE]

We regret to inform our valued SocialFlow customers that due to violent electrical storms in Virginia this evening, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a central part of Amazon.com’s cloud computing platform, temporarily lost power. This has impacted all sites on EC2 including SocialFlow. Publishing has been affected since 11pm eastern standard time.

We are working to make sure the SocialFlow application is back online as soon as possible.

We apologize for the inconvenience this outage has caused and will update as soon as we have more information.
