Pros: easy to use on desktop. Great to keep organized and ahead of the social media marketing options available.

Cons: limited on app, would love a better mobile on the go access. Being super busy and when a though arises, it would be great to share

Overall: Organizing the social media

Pros: It's nice to track our org's feeds & different social media accounts all in one place. We have several different Twitter and Facebook accounts, plus a few Google+ accounts, for our different communities, and it's nice to have them all in one place.

Cons: I imagine that Facebook, Google, and LinkedIn may have something to do with this, but the integration between HootSuite and posts to Facebook, G+, and LinkedIn Groups is pretty clunky. In fact, you can no longer post to LinkedIn Groups from HootSuite.

I wish HootSuite integrated its mobile image optimization app's services into Web-based HootSuite. When I upload a photo, it'd be great if HootSuite could suggest modifications to optimize how the image will appear on whichever account I'm posting to.

It's also hard to tell who has reposted one of your posts. I wish I could hover over the heart or RT values to see a pop-up of who has reposted/liked.

Overall: Integration with our various social media accounts.

Pros: Free option
Ability to monitor multiple sites
Ability to schedule social media posts
Ability to monitor comments, likes, conversations
Ability to monitor company mentions
View of all feeds on one screen

Cons: Can't schedule Instagam posts (although I think that is an instagram issue)
Layout is cumbersome
Free option only allows 3-4 social platforms to connect

We had paid for Hootsuite hoping it would fulfil a need but felt it couldn't support larger scales.

Pros: It offered a great solution for one business managing their social media streams all in one place, or even a small few, but ultimately not at a larger scale.

Cons: When trialling Hootsuite we didn't quite feel it had the capacity to support our scale of work. We had found that trying to monitor interactions on page across a number of profiles quite difficult and not as user friendly as other platforms.

Overall: I would happily recommend this to someone working with a smaller number of clients, but not for large scale community management.

Pros: I really liked how easy they made it to run multiple accounts by scheduling posts and organizing things out by account. I used this program for an internship and it made my job as social media manager much easier.

Cons: There was not a lot that I did not like about this software towards the end of the internship. However, it took me some time to learn how to properly use the program. Once I did, I saved a lot of time and work.

Overall: It made my life easier during my time at the internship.

Pros: What I like the most about Hootsuite is it's analytics, you can see them for every social media you have there. It's a very friendly software.

Cons: It's expensive if you're just starting a business but it's worth it to have control on your social media if that's what you want.

Overall: It saves me a lot of time while scheduling my posts for every social media that we have.

Pros: I like how it maximizes the social media manager's time. You are able to make an editorial calendar and schedule posts to go out on optimal days and times.

Overall: I can easily manager multiple social media accounts and save time.

Pros: Scheduling posts across all social platforms with the review option as well as the monitor option. I really like how you can use queries to find relevant posts about your industry and easily like and retweet them in the platform.

Cons: I've been using for over a year and there's still some of the obvious quirks that haven't been improved. Quirks or bugs that anyone would run into from doing the basic of tasks (including posting a status).

Overall: Easily scheduling posts with lots of options around settings for the posts.

Cons: As this is an auto-posting software it gets throttled by social media frequently. Further, the link preview is a bit touchy.

Pros: I like that I can do months worth of work and schedule my posts for the future. It is great to be able to track several hashtags on one screen on my laptop.

Cons: It would be great if each user could be brought on at a less expensive rate. For instance I would like my marketing firm users price to differ from my interns price.

I used a free version to schedule posts to personal Facebook.

Pros: I can schedule posts to Facebook and not have to worry. I like how it shows you a queue of all the posts to publish. You can also post as a page which is easy to use.

Cons: it was hard to set up at first, and they really push you to buy a subscription when the free one works just fine for scheduling posts.

Pros: Best platform when it comes to free. You can schedule and monitor all your influencers in one platform and that is very helpful.

Cons: Free version is much more limited now and that is disappointing, plus seems like their pricing has gone up significantly and they no longer have the suggested content feature and that was a big plus in my book.

Has increased my followers and engagement - I am also more informed of the issues I wish to follow.

Pros: As a marketing agency, with many customers - who run many social media channels - this tool is perfect. It helps me manage all my customer accounts under one roof - not forgetting any posts or client. It helps schedule posts on various channels at different times of day, depending on what I decide will best suite the audience. Great tool!

Cons: I don't like so much that it started as a free tool - and has a cost. In addition, I feel their customer service is not 100% effective. need more support at times.

Overall: Helps me manage all social media channels, for several customers, in one place without making any mistakes or forgetting anything. Helps with organization and monitoring!

Pros: The calendar layout and drag and drop feature of the posts makes it so easy to move the posts around and see at a glance what you have scheduled for the week.

Cons: Integration with Instagram is not complete. It's still a hassle to have to post via mobile. It's like setting a timer when the scheduling goes off. This still doesn't really reduce the time required to post to Instagram.

Overall: Ability to plan out the social media scheduling on a weekly basis.

Pros: The ability to manage several accounts and have several tabs open at the same time to monitor many social streams, is obviously handy and exactly the purpose of this software. It is largely intuitive, not particularly difficult to set up, and fairly customizable. If this is the only program that you have access to, for managing several social accounts, it's not too bad.

Cons: There are times when you might need to be logged into a number of different Twitter accounts, or other social accounts. This is where this software becomes frustrating and annoying. What you can be logged into is very limiting, because you can only have, for example, one Twitter account linked up at one time. I have managed multiple Twitter accounts, and you can't be logged into those, you have to pick only one. I would think the technology should be available to be able to log into as many accounts, on each platform, as you might need. HootSuite is OK, but that's all I would say¿ I would much rather use the native platform, which gets you better analytics anyway.

Pros: If you need something to let you manage a bunch of accounts, where you are mainly publishing and responding, or where you need to work with a team, Hootsuite might be pretty good.

Cons: For more straightforward/traditional use for reading the interface is incredibly cluttered and aggravating. Tweetdeck is better unless you have a specific use case.

Pros: Hootsuite offers great service for the value. Most other comparable products we looked into were more expensive.

Cons: The interface is a little clunky. You'll also want to note that if you want analytics you have to pay extra for each type of report.

Overall: I've used Hootsuite across multiple organizations. It allows people who don't know much about social media marketing to schedule and amplify their impact in that area.

Pros: Ease of use, multiple social media platform it covers, and the quick staff adoption of the product by our staff members. Also, overall improvement in our social media presence among our membership. Hootsuite really saves you a ton of time and effort by centralizing our social media efforts in one place.

Cons: To get the full benefits and streamlining out of Hootsuite, you have to buy a higher level plan. LinkedIn Group integration is going away, however, I don't think that is something Hootsuite can control. I worry that it's a sign that more and more social media companies will stop allowing intergration platforms like Hootsuite.

Overall: A significant amount of staff workload is reduced by Hootsuite because it allows our social media presence to be managed in one location. It has also greatly expanded our social media outreach to our clients and members.

Overall: The fact that the basic version is free is a big selling point. Even if it were not, I would still recommend it.

Pros: I like this software because of the speed of navigation it has, besides that, we get many like this. I like the fact of being able to make money helping the platform with my online presence since I plan to use it frequently and with much affection.

Cons: The color I do not like much, I do not know why but it seems to me like other similar pages, at the same time the presentation of the reports is not reliable yet, I hope to change my opinion about this that I just explained

Overall: Save time, money and work, I can manage easily anytime and instant.

Pros: You want Hootsuite to do one thing, manage social media channels. And it kills it at that. You can monitor everything you want from just a few clicks and schedule out as far in advance as you like. And it's all free to boot!

Cons: I wish Hootsuite had more metric reporting. Right now that feature seems lacking in a time when social media is becoming increasingly about data analysis.

Overall: It makes planning out social media for the coming month a snap!

Comments: I have been using Hootsuite for about 2 years now. It is user-friendly and intuitive. You just connect your 3 social media accounts (for the free version you get up to 3), then start scheduling content. You can easily upload a photo, or add a link (which it will shorten for you - very handy). I love that it has both the Streams view, and the Scheduler. The Streams is handy to see side-by-side your past content and current, and the Scheduler allows you to easily see what you have scheduled in a calendar view.
I have never contacted customer support so I can't speak for that, but I can say that every problem I've run into was easily fixed and so I didn't need customer support - that's a plus right there! Occasionally accounts get disconnected and you have to reconnect them, but that is really the only bother I have run into with using hootsuite. It makes scheduling out a month's worth of social media simple and easy.

Pros: Is the only tool I have found that works great to schedule social media content.

Cons: It feels like outdated.

Overall: We use hootsuite to schedule all our clients social media content but it doesn't let you post gif in a friend way, post with photos (not album) and sometimes the copy is all messed up with spaces.

It needs to be upgraded and up to date with the latest things Facebook and instagram is working, like the stories and the simply fact that instagram should post automatically not manually.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think a rebranding would work to make it more simple and up to date. Also it should be easier to schedule the post and boost it from there.

It allows me to switch back and forth between my different social media accounts with ease which may seem like a small thing, but after a while it is a real time and hassle saver

Recommendations to other buyers: It's worth a try if you plan on posting to several social media accounts on a regular basis as it is definitely a time saver once all is set up

Comments: I'm a freelance business writer and I use Hootsuite to promote content published online. I appreciate its relatively easy-to-use system of shortening links, attaching images and being able to post on LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. There are occasional disruptions or links that don't automatically attach photos, but in most cases this appears to be an issue with the site being linked to, not Hootsuite. I also believe Hootsuite offers additional features and functionality I've not had time to explore.

Pros: The free version allows you to manage up to three social platforms which may be all you need. It allows you to schedule posts for all platforms at one time.

Cons: There are other paid plans which are fairly cheap if you have more than three social media platforms. This software is very convenient for you since it's a hassle to be posting among all platforms all the time individually.

Overall: Basic HootSuite has a free version which allows you to schedule and manage three social media platforms. We are able to schedule posts and track responsiveness and engagement for our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts which are our only accounts. If you need a more advanced feature then you may purchase a package. The basic version has a lot of options and it's great for us especially because we are looking still to revamp our social media.

Recommendations to other buyers: There are great tutorials and online videos. The site is very user friendly and intuitive.

Comments: Hootsuite is used in our office weekly to send posts to Facebook, Twitter and Linked in, and it is a valuable timesaver for me. It was easy to learn how to enter posts, and to enter new forms of Social Media. Great for beginners, too. Probably the best feature is being able to schedule a post for a later time. I am able to schedule for times when I know I will not be in the office, so we never miss our regular posting time.

We use the free version and have had no reason to use the paid version, but for someone bigger than we are, it would be worth checking.

Comments: I've used Hootsuite to schedule posts to FB, Twitter, and set up notifications to post on Instagram. The only downfall is that you get a push notification for IG (rather than automatic publishing) However, this is because of IG and not Hootsuite. I'd recommend the product to save time for scheduling, and making business social media shares more time efficient. A positive for productivity!

Pros: Pricing (free), ability to schedule social media posts on multiple channels at one time

Cons: Could not get Hootsuite to post correctly to both a personal and company page on LinkedIn.

Overall: I have used the free version of Hootsuite for a couple of years now. The ability to schedule social media posts, for no additional charge, is awesome. The UI is not bad, but could be a little more intuitive. However, I did learn to use it quite easily. I found when scheduling posts for Twitter and other channels, if the post had too many characters, it would be cut off on Facebook. Hootsuite also did not play well with LinkedIn. I was never able to get scheduled posts to appear on our LinkedIn company page. Still, the free version of Hootsuite is quite usable and useful. I would definitely recommend trying it out, and considering using the better, paid version.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it, then consider trying the paid version.

Pros: Ease of use and it's intuitiveness.

Cons: Nothing I can think of at this point.

Overall: I've been using HootSuite for going on 2 years now and love its flexibility and available features. My primary use for it is to schedule social media posts across 3 different platforms. I also use it as a convenient alternative to my Twitter account when retweeting accounts I follow as HootSuite allows me to schedule tweets according to my desired schedule of days and/or hours. Hootsuite is able to auto-schedule future tweets which correspond to the best times past tweets garnered the best response. I think this is invaluable when it comes to growing your Twitter audience. Furthermore, you can customize multiple streams according to hashtags or even geolocation, both of which are again, instrumental if you're trying to grow your base of followers.

Recommendations to other buyers: Definitely great for Twitter, the Instagram posting is a bit disjointed (through no fault of HootSuite), and Facebook posting is a cinch.

And it's worth saying that I never used the paid version of Hootsuite, and I still found it to be completely functional, even without paying anything.

Comments: Hootsuite is a great platform for the basic scheduling of social media content for businesses looking to get more serious about social media marketing. It's limited when you start looking at tracking and reporting for all the accounts. The interface could use some updates. It was hard to transition from using Sprout Social (which has everything in a great interface) to HootSuite, but if I had started with HootSuite originally I would be happier with it. Good price for small businesses, but maybe not a fit for agencies.

Pros: Ease of advanced planning and scheduling tweets that are set in stone, such as deadline reminders. You can also create feeds to follow certain handles or hashtags.

Cons: Sometimes creating the dashboard to be fully customized removes you from the general twitter-verse and makes your view too insulated.

Overall: Overall, Hootsuite is great to schedule tweets and follow particular events. Well organized, you can customize your dashboard. However, it can get unruly with too many options. Scheduling can be very useful when setting up deadlines for submission reminders or event promotion, but be careful scheduling too far in advance because you'll lose relevancy. It is also not a great tool for managing conversations.

Recommendations to other buyers: Even if you set it on autopilot, check in frequently.

The issue, you're going to need to get a paid account to get the most out of it unless you're simply looking to auto-schedule content. They are always introducing new features, like their recent article suggestion feature, which is nice to see.

Recommendations to other buyers: Check out Zoho Social, quite similar.

Comments: Hootsuite is my go-to social media software for small businesses that don't need an enterprise platform with lots of seats and task management. If you only have one or two people that run your social media pages, and you are a small to medium sized business, the software probably has what you need.

You can schedule posts for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram. There are some limitations. If you are scheduling a video post or link on Facebook, you may want to do it through Facebook itself so you have more control over how the images display. And, the Instagram feature merely pushes to your phone, so you still have to open the Hootsuite App and publish the post when the time comes, it won't just go up automatically. Their YouTube tool is pretty terrible if you have more than a couple videos posted. Best to do that on YouTube.
The dashboard allows you to monitor most of your major channels at once. In addition, you can set filters to allow you to track relevant conversations on Twitter.

You are going to need to log into Facebook and YouTube from time to time, and you will still need Instagram on your phone. If you Snapchat, that will still have to be done separately as well. But, since most small businesses don't have constant chatter on those channels.

Pros: Helps me be efficient and effective with my work. My clients love that I post almost everyday. Before Hootsuite, it would take me hours to post the same post to all my clients. Now, it is minutes.

Cons: I wish when posting, you could post more than 1 picture. Hootsuite allows you to post more than 1, but in the newsfeed, each picture is it's own post.

Overall: I post for multiple clients, the same posts because they are in the same industry. I have 35 clients, once I create the post, it literally takes me 3 minutes to post to all of them. Saves me time and Money

Pros: - Seamless integration between accounts
- Great mobile app support
- Easy to configure and manage

Cons: - Troublesome at times to accurately manage the dashboard depending on the # of accounts you have.

Overall: We utilize this software to manage our restaurant's social media accounts. Prior to this service it would take far too long to post to accounts and update information on individual sites. Now we can create, schedule, publish, and update all from one dashboard to all of our accounts.

This saves both time and allows for more seamless coordination between all of our accounts. You can also see feeds from each account that allows you to track valuable information on a single page.

I'd definitely recommend this to any business that is looking to integrate their social media account management. The service is also free up to a certain amount of usage, which is fantastic!

Pros: Being able to schedule posts ahead of time frees up my time.

Cons: It doesn't work as well with Facebook as Twitter.

Overall: As a long-time user of HootSuite, I can say this is by far the most intuitive social media monitoring product we have worked with. I currently use both the free and paid versions. Being able to schedule posts ahead of time allows my team to have a cohesive social media strategy and frees up a lot of time. They can spend more time on community engagement when they are able to put up pre-planned posts all at once.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you haven't yet - check it out! It can't hurt to use the free version and then decide if you need to upgrade.

Comments: I discontinued using Hootsuite a few months ago, mostly because the cost and (at that time, maybe it's changed) the fact I couldn't schedule Instagram posts. Since Instagram is the most important sm platform for my company, I was just kind of like "what's the point." Since you can schedule posts on Facebook from your page, it's kind of not necessary there, either. The one thing I miss is being able to log in to one place and handle most of my media from there.

Comments: As the name suggests, HootSuite's strength is being a great social media management tool for Twitter especially. We manage our Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+ accounts there. It's easy to view and categorize several platforms and topics at once. I prefer to schedule Facebook posts directly in Facebook or from Wordpress as they render the content better. The reporting is just ok. You have to purchase additional reporting to get more complex reports.

Sometimes navigating the settings can seem a bit convoluted (adding new people to specific teams or streams), but overall, it is user friendly and intuitive without any training.

However, due mostly to our poorly designed website, we ran into compliance issues with the posts including images that were not related to the product/service we were posting about. As such, we opted to discontinue using the software.

Comments: Hootsuite is an excellent tool for managing your personal and business social media profiles. I've found it to be both intuitive, and easy to learn. It is very convenient because you can pre-schedule your content, delegate work to team members, multitask in ways that you couldn't before. The analytics gives you an insightful overview of how your efforts are resonating with your audience, so you can develop and quickly implement a strong plan of action. Hootsuite makes it easy to create attention-grabbing social media campaigns and exciting interactive promotions. The only issue I have is not being able to schedule Instagram posts via Hootsuite, but that is more Instagrams fault than Hootesuite. Overall this is a great product that I would reccomend to others!

Pros: It is one of the simplest Social media managers in the market, the freeplan is great because it provides essential features for beginners and experts at no cost. I also like the mini tutorial for new users, at the right side of the dashboard.

I personally use Tweetdeck for social listening on Twitter but Hootsuite is also great for that.

Cons: I dont like the fact that if i want to schedule a post with multiple images i'll have to schedule it directly on Facebook or on Tweetdeck for twitter.

Overall: Hootsuite and Buffer are my go to social media, despite the several other SM Managers that I¿ve tried out. I work with 5 brands and I have to manage their social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn)

I¿ve been using Hootsuite (and Buffer) for three years but of the two Hootsuite is my favorite and my safe bet. I have a habit of testing out as many free marketing software¿s as I can find and in terms of social media marketing Hootsuite is the best. The interface is easy to use, and the tutorial available to each new signup is very helpful.

I love being able to tag a Facebook page, Twitter profile or Instagram profile in a post. The android app is also fully functional on my Kindle Fire (Unlike Buffer) which is a plus.

The Feedly> Hootsuite integration is a major plus, I¿ve never used the Hootsuite RSS feed option even though I keep planning to, but I like being able to share informative posts from feedly (On my Kindle Fire) to Hootsuite.

What I love the best is that the free plan unlike buffer lets you schedule as many posts as you want to 3 social media profiles. This is great because I can schedule a month worth of social media posts in three days unlike the 10 posts per profile restriction on the Buffer¿s free plan.
The analytics reports aren¿t very detailed and often I rely on Start a Fire as well as a variety of other software¿s to get in-depth analytics but the brands I work with do not understand or see the need for in-depth analysis so I suppose it¿s okay.

I¿m not happy that Hootsuite doesn¿t support posts with multiple images, I learnt that the awkward way when I made a post with 3 pictures.

I recommend Hootsuite for beginners and Individuals who want a simple, straight forward social media manager. Oh, and the Hootsuite academy is very insightful.

Comments: Ive used this platform to manage sm networks of an event company and I was super helpful and easy to use. I would create my content and not worry about the posts.
