        Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us!

        Currently the Instagram API that HootSuite uses supports read-only, meaning that within the HootSuite web dashboard, users can read their feeds, but not post images. However, pending updates to the Instagram API, we hope to be able to re-examine this capability in the future.

        To view your Instagram account in HootSuite, check out the Instagram 3rd party app in our app directory at https://hootsuite.com/app-directory.

        Thank you for using HootSuite!

      • Posting to LinkedIn Showcase pages

        LinkedIn is creating showcase pages that are separate from the main company pages. I'd like to use HootSuite to post to those as well as company pages so I don't have to do this process manually for my client.

            • Let us see complete list of people who "liked" Facebook page

              The Facebook help community is FILLED with people wanting this! Viewers, please help by voting this...

              ...I have several people who "liked" my page because I used a service to generate likes... but these people are irrelevant to my page, which makes less relevant people see my posts... I want to take them off my likes, but Facebook lets us only see a few people.

              PLEASE create the solution!

              • make it possible to remove the thumbnail when posting on Google +.

                When I post a link directly to Google + I have an option to remove the thumbnail image. When I post a link to Google + from Hootsuite, I get a message that says "Google + pages do not support hiding thumbnails."
                Is it possible to change that so I can suppress the thumbnail?
                Thanks.

                • Allow HootSuite Pro users to co-manage accounts with other HootSuite Pro users

                  I had to switch tools because HootSuite Pro doesn't allow you to import accounts that other HootSuite users are managing; this limits my ability to co-manage with my clients. Had to move to another social media tool.

                  I'd be happy to pay a little extra for the ability to co-manage, although not as much as Enterprise. There may be room for another service tier here. I'm happily paying $40/month for Sprout.

                  • Ability to add VIDEOS to FACEBOOK!

                    We can schedule images to facebook, but what about Videos? Videos increase user engagement 10x more than images. Most facebook savvy users know this. I'm sure there are hundreds, thousands if not tens of thousands of subscribers that would pay an extra fee for this type of service! Please people, back me on this!

                      • Add an option to disable shift+enter to publish

                        I see you've declined this idea in the past but hear me out:
                        Shift+Enter to auto publish is a *shortcut*, not a necessary feature. Most people don't even know it exists until they accidentally press it and blast out a half-finished message to thousands of people.

                        If Ctrl+Z is the shortcut for Undo in almost every program but you make it the shortcut to auto-delete the file in your program you're going to cause problems.

                        Twice now I've accidentally published unfinished posts and it's just silly that you won't even add an *option* to disable it for people who will…

                        • Add "save message as template" feature for Hootlet

                          I use Hootlet to "bookmark" web-pages that I sift through and then I go back and draft/schedule my tweets at the end. Right now, I use hootlet to grab the URL and title for me, and then copy and paste that text to the hootsuite webpage to save it. It would be much simpler if I could just save that text as a template straight from the application!

                                • new feature - tiny thumbnail

                                  I have scheduled posts that I thought I attached a photo to, but when it deployed, it was not there. Is there a way to either show a tiny thumbnail of the photo or a paper clip icon that makes it easy to know at a glance, whether the post is set up correctly? Thank you.

                                    • create "read only" accounts...

                                      For larger organizations such as ours, being able to create team members that have view-only rights (they can see everything - home feed, mentions, sent, scheduled - but simply cannot post tweets) is helpful. It would give us the flexibility to have our team members be able to monitor and report trends to supervision for action.

                                      • Email Statuses/Links to "Drafts" Folder

                                        I would like to email articles/links to my HootSuite "Drafts" and then edit/schedule them when I get back to my computer.

                                        For example, when I am traveling, I catch up on my blog reading. When an article is share-worthy, I'd like to send it directly to HootSuite, so that I can publish/share it, as appropriate.

                                        Thanks!

                                        • Integrate scheduled stream posts with Facebook's scheduling and activity log.

                                          At the moment Hootsuite and Facebook can schedule posts individually, but we cannot see posts scheduled across platforms. Perhaps let Facebook feed scheduled posts from the activity log into Hootsuite for monitoring?
