Here at downrightnow, we’re frequently among the first to notice when a popular web service hits turbulence. We also pay close attention to how quickly companies respond and what they have to say. With web-based email and social networking becoming ubiquitous and indispensable, users clamor for quick acknowledgement and detailed information whenever a web site suffers an outage. The past week has seen improvements from both Facebook and Blogger in how they communicate during and after service disruptions, and their efforts are worthy of praise.
downrightnow monitors the status of your favorite web services, combining user reports and official announcements to tell you when there's service trouble.
