Most critical review

 Good but complex

I can get a bit complex pretty fast. The layout is not always easy to navigate My biggest gist with hootsuit is that It doesn't have bulk upload WITH images! :(. Hoot suite is a good app, I used it to evaluate my crowdfunding progress on twitter and Facebook, it seem to be the most popular,...

Free version may be all you need

27/02/2017

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.

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.

Great for saving time, while still getting out your message

27/02/2017

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.

Great for scheduling

23/02/2017

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!

Useful tool for social media planning.

Hootsuite is very useful especially for planning involvement in social media on a strategic level. The ability to navigate to various social platforms is helpful and is very useful for the average or really experienced social media coordinator.

Pros

Ease of use and visual display.

Cons

Nothing to report so far.

Great for a Social Media Start

10/02/2017

Currently I use the free version of Hootsuite to manage three social media channels. I love being able to pre-schedule content that can be added to Facebook at a time of their or my choosing. I just wish that on Facebook it didn't indicated it was posted via Hootsuite. I liked this better than other social media services I tried.

Definitely Worth the Money

06/02/2017

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.

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.

Social Media made easy with HootSuite

06/02/2017

Our company has been using HootSuite for several years and it has really helped us streamline our social media processes. Posting is easy. Post to one, two, three or more of your channels at one time. I love that you can schedule messaging ahead then forget it...HootSuite does the rest for you. This is a must have product for businesses serious about social media.
