Facebook posting of weather alerts
« on: April 10, 2019, 09:58:46 PM »
I know this may have been hashed over many times before, please bear with me.

Many of us use WxMesg to post weather alerts to Facebook pages. As we know this no longer works for some and others it still functions.

It only seems a matter of time before none of us will be able to post automatic generated Wx alerts to FB.

Has anyone overcome this anomaly or is this final?

I have many followers on FB ( > 9000) and I understand that latency can and is an issue for real time alerts on Facebook. I am trying to migrate to some other method/platform that makes this easy for my viewers....

Any suggestions/inputs are welcome....

Jim

I thought IFTTT was supposed to do it. I never was able to get it to work.

I dumped my RMS facebook page. Tired of getting messages asking me why school was not cancelled.
