I think being able to create Facebook events for each Facebook page from the dashboard would be extremely useful. That way, I wouldn't have to leave my HS dashboard to create and edit events and I could also send links to the events via twitter and other networks.264 votes
We continue to consider ways of extending Facebook’s functionality within HootSuite.
add a media preview tool for Linkedin like you have for Facebook213 votes
We’re happy to confirm that users posting to LinkedIn Company Pages and their personal Profiles will see a preview generated on LinkedIn for links.
At this time the preview won’t be shown on HootSuite until after the post is sent, and we’ll look into further functionality in this area in the future.
If you have further questions or concerns, please leave them in the comments below and we would be happy to assist you.
You can now easily upload images and share images with your tweets directly from twitter.com no need to use any other website or application. Can you please add an option to upload images via HootSuite directly to Twitter.com and not to ow.ly?177 votes
Thanks so much for your feedback! Owly images now generate previews on Twitter, same as the native image hosting for Twitter. We’re continue to review the possibility of posting directly to Twitter in the future.
Add the Twitter 'interactions' tab to the stream so users no longer miss important interactions with their followers.
We constantly miss RT's notices and other interactions with our users since Hootsuite doesn't allow users to import 'interactions' data. Please add ASAP!161 votes
We’ll review this good idea with our dev team.
Twitter has a stream API which allows a live view of the users twitter stream. Documentation is here http://dev.twitter.com/pages/streaming_api. TweetDeck (and ChromeDeck), and Seesmic both support it, and it's a great feature, would be awesome to have it in hootsuite too.122 votes
This is Twitter functionality we hope to add in the upcoming future.
I can't believe it's not possible to upload/or schedule a picture to be uploaded to Facebook without the requirement/necessity of having a Twitter Account as well. Sort this out please Hootsuite, this is a basic requirement.99 votes
We hope to enable this feature for a future release.
Can't believe that with the inevitable phone upload not being properly in portrait or landscape that Hootsuite doesn't give us any way to rotate. Seriously??69 votes
We will continue to look into ways that Owly images can be better manipulated after an upload (such as rotating).
However, for users that are having trouble with pictures uploading with the wrong rotation, we do have a suggestion. Many users have found that toggling the orientation lock on their mobile device, specifically iOS, has resolved this issue. To do so on iOS, double tap the home button, swipe once left and press the orientation button.
If this doesn’t resolve the issue for you, don’t worry! We’ll still keep this feedback item under review.

Here’s how to delete your tweets from HootSuite:
Currently, this is not possible with Facebook posts, though we hope to add this functionality in the future.
It's good to have the "#" symbol for twitter.
Then, when your post is going to facebook or linkedin, you have the "#" symbol before some words.
But for people who don't know the meaning of the "#", it seems strange .. so it maybe a good idea to have an option to remove the "#" when posting to Facebook or Linkedin (elsewhere thant twitter).
Thank you.45 votes
We’ll examine further options for hashtags with different social networks.
Sometimes I post images which I like the user to be able to view on the Facebook page without clicking the owl.ly link. It would be great if these images could be uploaded to the Facebook page (with a chosen image folder).40 votes
We’ll consider this functionality for future releases. Thank you for your feedback!
When FB friends post updates with games they are playing (like Farmville) I like to hid them. They don't show up on FB after I hide them, but they keep showing up in Hootsuite. Hidden people are removed from Hootsuite, but not hidden games35 votes
We hope to add further Facebook functionality in future releases.
Use the API of the simple to configure yourls open source project to shorten links with the use of the own domain. ie. pro7.de/galileolive34 votes
We may consider more URL shorteners in the upcoming future.
Instead of kicking the toggle back and forth between Auto-Schedule and not, I would like to see a way that RTs or replies are not auto-scheduled and it is recognized that, that information should be sent in real time.33 votes
This is an excellent feature suggestion, and we’ll continue to monitor how many users would like to implement this feature.
Foursquare has recently launched their pages for business, would be great to be able to manage them from hootsuite33 votes
We hope to add more Foursquare functionality in the upcoming future.
It's great that we can schedule facebook posts with the image, but the blog post has to be live to do this. I would love the ability to enter my blog admin credentials so when I schedule a week's worth of blog posts to auto post in the future I can also pre-schedule the facbook posts before the blog post has gone live. We need a way for hootsuite to get into the blog and pull the info. Or whichever way is best; the bottom line is: it doesn't do any good to schedule a facebook post for a blog post that's already live. I want to be able to schedule a blog post in advance AND schedule the facebook post for that blog post, so both the blog post AND the facebook post for it automatically go up when they should in the future. Now, if I enter the info for a scheduled blog post that isn't live yet, it just gives me the main blog page info, which is useless.

We continue to offer further ways to make HootSuite more user friendly to bloggers.
It would be wonderful if, as is with some other clients, I could filter out tweets from specific users, filter out mentions of specific users or applications (like paper.li, for example) or by keyword.26 votes
HootSuite now has filters based on keyword and Klout score. This feature is currently exclusive to users on a Pro plan.
Filters based on application and user is also something worth considering.
We’ll see if this is possible with Facebook’s API.
It seems that I can't pull in a stream of my direct messages from Facebook & LinkedIn where I can with Twitter. This means I can't get away from using LinkedIn & Facebook entirely. I can't imagine this would be a difficult feature to add, but what do I know?24 votes
We’ll examine if LinkedIn and Facebook’s APIs support this functionality.
I wish I could have that option for the management of my pages on facebook21 votes
We’re considering further Facebook features to add to HootSuite.
Thanks for this suggestion. I believe we may be able to fix this for you. Please try reconnecting your Facebook profile through these steps exactly: http://ow.ly/c9lgn. Following this, clear your cache through Settings> Preferences.
This should pull in only the posts you’d like. If not, let me know by commenting below and we can keep investigating!
