Facebook Fan Page Notifications With Hyper Alerts Free App!

Often when businesses set up a Facebook fan page they don’t necessarily have thetime to monitorthe page regularly for fan activity. Notifications of fan posts and comments would be ideal for so many small businesses and/or new fan page owners.

Fan page notifications have been sorely missing on Facebook. (I always figured it was a sheer volume issue. Could you imagine fan pages that frequently get anywhere from a few thousand to tens of thousands of comments on each postreceiving notifications from Facebook? Think of pages such as Vin Diesel, Ellen DeGeneres or Starbucks! That would create a mega notification logjam.)

Many Facebook users have been eagerly searching for a solution. There are certainly plenty of social media management tools and services out there – some free, some for a fee. But, how about a nice, simple, clean email alert any time a fan posts or comments on your wall?

Introducing…

Voila – a beautiful and exciting new app that sends you an email for all posts and/or comments on your Facebook fan page. The app is called “Hyper Alerts” and is currently in public beta. Hyper Alerts was created by Are Sundnes for Hyper Interaktiv in Oslo, Norway.

I must say, I love the graphic design, clean and simple layout, andsuper easy set up and navigation!

Step 1 – Sign up:

Go here to sign up: http://alerts.hyperinteraktiv.no/

Hyper Alerts Signup Page

Step 2 – Click the “+ Add new alert” button:

Hyper Alerts - set up new Facebook fan page alert

Step 3 – Enter the address of your Facebook fan page:

Hyper Alerts enter Facebook fan page address

NOTE: The system does not use Facebook Connect and does not need access to your personal data. Love that!

Step 4 – Select your four settings:

Choose from four different settings: the frequency of alerts, fan posts, fan comments, and your own content. Click save.

Step 5 – Keep an eye on your email!

Even the emails are beautiful: clean and simple with the exact view of what you’d see on your Facebook wall. Plus, they are all text (not an image of the text) so, guess what? Yes, that means your fan page content can now be archived and is searchable!All links are active, too.

Hyper Alerts Facebook fan page email alert example

Pros:

  • Hyper Alerts does not require access to your Facebook account.
  • It’s free.
  • It’s a beautiful and easy-to-use interface.
  • You can easilymonitor multiple Facebook fan pages. (“Add as many alerts as you like,” says Hyper Alerts!)
  • You can set up multiple alerts for the same fan page – e.g. receive alerts immediately for fan activity, plus a weekly (and/or monthly) report.
  • PLUS, you can archive your fan page content! By receiving emails with all your Facebook page content and activity, you now have a *searchable* archive!YES – this is reason enough for me to sign up and just filter the emails to a folder. πŸ˜‰

Cons:

  • Perhaps the ability to reply to fan postsright within your email would be handy.
  • Other than that, I can’t see any downsides to Hyper Alerts – try it out and let me know if you find anything not to like about this fabulous app!

Huge props to one of my Facebook community members, Erik Eskedal, for the tip about Hyper Alerts. This blog post is completely unsolicited and unpaid; it’s simply a wholehearted review of the fabulous Norwegian peeps’ great app. I hope they have tremendous success with it!

Other Facebook activity alert systems

Alternative solutions for Facebook fan activity alerts include: the Fan Page Notifier app and Page Notifier app.

Plus, the awesome Postling app which is a complete social profile management system I’ll be reviewing in a future blog post.

Postling

In addition, you’ll receive notifications right inside Facebook any time you a) like your own posts or b) @ tag your personal profile in posts. These two methods only cover fan comments though, not fan posts.

There’s also Google alerts which isn’t as reliable, though you might give it a whirl. Try this search string: ago site:http://facebook.com/yourusername. (Make sure there is no space between site:). This will pick up from the timestamp where it always says “xx minutes ago.” Use this method for any keyword alerts too – you’re basically asking Google to search your fan page for whatever you wish. I would recommend against using this method alone.

So, there you have it, a very exciting new app to try out!! Do let me know what you think and if you use Hyper Alerts how it works out for you. Anything else you’d like to see added to the app? Let me know in the comments below!

    Great tip, Mari. I’ve been testing out Postling as per your recommendation and liking it so far. I’m going to try HyperAlerts because although I don’t have a lot of “fans” yet, I want to be sure not to miss the opportunity to acknowledge any new ones.
    Thank you. Looking forward to your session at BSS11.

  • Cara Barone

    Woo Hoo – this is great! We will be trying it soon and report back. Thanks for sharing!

  • Thanks for the super tip on Hyper Alerts Mari.. This will be a great asset to many of us personally, and to help us maintain our client pages also! I can see this working well w/ Hootsuite.. especially while mobile!
    1. Get your email notification Hyper Alert for a new comment on your fan page.
    2. Reply to the comment using Hootsuite.
    And there you are, able to work on the go and virtually assist your clients all in one fell swoop:)

  • Thank you Mari, I have several pages that I use for community groups and its embarrassing not to respond to wall posts because I have forgotten to check them for a while. I am glad you are bloggin 3 times a week. You have so many valuable tips to share.

  • Thanks, Mari! This will prove very useful.

  • Thank you for sharing! I am set up and ready to test this out!

  • Thank you so much for this. What a great tool. I currently use Nutshellmail, which always gets truncated on my BB, and Postling, but I love the ease of set-up here.

  • Thanks, Nicky!!! πŸ™‚

  • Thank you kindly!!

  • This is amazing. I was hoping someone would come up with an app like this! Thank you SO much for sharing!

  • Love it! Thank you for sharing. I’ve signed up right away!

  • Patti

    I’m trying to log in with the email associated with my FB account, and neither the FB password or the email password is working. Suggestions?

  • Looks like a great resource. Thanks!

  • Patti

    Never mind, I figured it out, duh. All set up!

  • PERFECT! I’ve been looking for this for a while πŸ™‚

  • Cooooolio tip here Mari..

    And of course I have to support my Norwegian friends, so will sign up for this.. don’t hurt that one of them has the same first name as me πŸ™‚

    Cheers.. Are

  • That was fast Mari! The other day you gave a way to get alerts, and now a MUCH better way appears. Thanks so much for the post with all the details for using this tool! Have a terrific weekend Julieanne

  • This is incredibly helpful! I manage a page with 37,000+ fans so this will help me a bunch! Thanks for posting Mari.

  • JNFerree

    Great Tip Mari!
    I’ve been using Google Alerts to monitor KW’s micro niches (I select everything) and instant so I get an email anytime a new Blog post or video or EZA gets indexed by Google. This FB alert addy will surely come in handy on a few levels.

  • frank barry

    Doesn’t nutshellmail do something similar for you as well?

  • Anonymous

    Hope you like it. Thanks for doing a great review Mari. They deserve it. And thanks for mentioning me as the source. “Sharing is caring” enjoy!

  • Thanks for the tip. This will be handy!

  • Another great post. You’re a great person to have around, Mari. Thanks!

  • Jessica Wilson

    I just signed up thanks for sharing! Especially useful now that Postling has started charging for alerts…. Thanks again!

  • Thank you for sharing! Its Great!

  • LOVE this! With all the fan pages I monitor this is going to be very helpful. I did find however that I have two pages it keeps telling me are not valid pages…even though they are. Have you run into that?

  • I am encountering this with biz pages that have vanity URLs. Including one of my own. This sadly makes this app a no-go.

  • Keith D Shrock

    Thank You for your detailed post!
    This was much needed – and looks much better than Google analytics.

  • Awesome, thanks so much for sharing this Mari!

    For anyone who is getting the invalid page message, go to your page and add Norway to your pages country settings first then go back and add it for alerts. Mine was set for Canada & US only but once I added Norway it worked like a charm!

  • nar321

    It only finally worked when I copied and pasted the entire URL into the HyperAlerts AddURL box. So if your having a problem like I was try the above .

  • This sounds incredible! one great app after so many days! Thanks Mari for sharing with us! πŸ™‚

  • simple fb apps

    facebook apps are so powerful that every business should consider having one!!

  • DMS

    Really cool application,

    Thanks

  • Jackie Purnell

    You are my little blue facebook fairy…thanks for all you do to make my life easier.

  • Patty

    Using Melody’s tip of adding “Norway” to page’s country settings did the trick for me.

  • Patty

    Thank you, Melody! Don’t know how you ever figured that out, but it was the secret fix!

  • Glad it worked for you too Patty!

  • You’re welcome Patty. A lucky guess, I figured since it was a .no (Norway) domain that might solve the problem and it did!

  • Pingback: Updates van je Facebook pagina in je inbox – HyperAlerts | Webmaster Resources()

  • I ran into a problem with one of my pages: the page is for a bar, so I have it set to restrict content to 21+ since there is alcohol related content and I’m trying to be responsible. Hyper Alerts gives me the “invalid URL” message. (I tried Melody’s suggestion about adding Norway already- no dice). I was able to add other pages with no problem.

    So it seems that if your page has an age restriction, this app won’t work. It’s a great idea, though, and I’m anxious to see how it works with my other pages.

  • Thanks for this great info. I’m getting notifications that people are commenting but their comments aren’t showing on my wall. The email alert doesn’t say if that was a private message. Any ideas why their comment isn’t showing up or how I can tell if it was a private message? Thanks!

  • Worked for me too… thank you Patty and Melody!

  • Thank you very much for sharing the info about Hyper Alerts. It will be a great help for our work. Love it!

  • Hi Mari, thanks for the post. Because the company is in Norway, if you want to use the “Daily” for archival purposes, I found setting the time to 1500 my time (Pacific) corresponded to midnight Norway time. Now my Daily Alerts have just the posts from that one day.

  • Tracy

    Mari, I started using this app last week when I first read your blog post. It’s awesome and is totally what I was looking for..Thanks so much for sharing everything you do. If you ever come to Canada let me know..I have a a network of women who would probably love to meet you or hear you speak. T

  • haha, thanks, Jackie!! I love that moniker – may have to use it! πŸ™‚

  • Fabulous tip, Melody – you ROCK!!! πŸ™‚ (Loooooove your name, btw!)

  • Oh that is a totally awesome tip – woweee thanks heaps!!

  • Aha – have you checked your Spam filter?? Facebook’s algorithms can be really tight and often bona fide posts end up in there. See this video I made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWKJvVXZf24

  • Wow, I’m blushing Mari. Thank you for such a lovely complement. However, you are the real Rock Star! It’s an honor and delight to know you. Thank you for everything you do.

  • hehee – hey there, Nate! Happy dance time! πŸ™‚

  • Jonathan Oliff

    This is an awesome tool, I’m sure you’ll agree Mari. I’ve posted three times asking questions of my Facebook guru on your fan page and you didn’t receive them or comment back. I was getting a little despondent, kept thinking that maybe I was asking stupid questions and shouldn’t get involved, but I do realize that you receive so many questions and you may have just missed mine…anyway, thanks for the tips again!

  • I love this new feature, but I am not being able to add one of my accounts. I get this message every time I try: This URL can not be used. Are you sure it’s a Facebook Page and not a user or group? If your page is restricted by country, you may not be able to add it. This issue will be sorted out soon.
    The page was created by the client, so I don’t know if it’s something on the set up of the page.
    Anybody else had this problem?

  • Fernanda

    Oh, just saw the comments below, I’ll try to do that!

  • Awesome! I tried another alert app and I haven’t been receiving any notifications. I’m excited to try this one. πŸ™‚

  • Jim Farnsworth

    Can’t get it to work…no notifications at all…

  • Aloleng

    does this work with Fan pages messages too?

  • Barbara MacRobie

    I’m trying it, but I don’t get alerts when another Page tags my Page. I did get a notification when a personal Profile tagged my Page. Isn’t there anything out there that lets me know when a Page has tagged my Page? An important part of my organization’s mission (we’re a state arts council) is relationships with arts organizations, not just individual people. Two examples: 1) We run a feature article about the arts every month on our website, and other arts groups often promote it via their Facebook Pages. They’ll tag us, but I don’t get a notification/alert, so I don’t know they’re promoting us. 2) I’ll give a shout-out to arts groups on my Page’s Facebook. I tag them, but they don’t know I’m spreading the word about them because they don’t get a notification/alert.Β

  • Crystal Flaherty

    I’m here to testify about the great work Dr ODOMA did for me. I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the past 5 years and had constant pain, especially in my knees. During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago i came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called Dr ODOMA on how he cured her from Herpes Simplex Virus. And she also gave the email address of this man and advise anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Well i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as Dr ODOMA assured me that i will be cured,after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if i have be finally healed behold it was TRUE, So friends my advise is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can contact Dr ODOMA via email odomaspelltemple@outlook.com or his website on http://odomspelltemple.webs.com Thanks once again Dr ODOMA…….
