Allow Schedule and Upload of pictures to Facebook without needing a Twitter account as well!?
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.
I would love to see an option to upload your own images directly to your facebook page.
So it would be compatible with this: http://content.screencast.com/users/stevelight82/folders/Jing/media/077a0c0e-eb7b-49a8-918e-492da6811288/2013-05-20_0928.png
Currently, I have to do this manually and it's clunky as I need to check the times and dates of my current updates in hootsuite and make sure they don't clash.
People are crying out for this Hootsuite, please listen dudes.
it would be nice if we could post Pics (planned pics etc...) directly to our FB timelines without linking directly to a twitter account.
We hope to enable this feature for a future release.
I agree. The option to upload images without needing a twitter account should be a basic function.

Please remove the Twitter hosting issue and allow me to post straight to Facebook and my pages account!
I agree, this is able to be done on other programs using API, yet it can't be done through Hootsuite. It makes no sense. This definitely gives a competitive advantage to other companies offering a similar service.
I know how upsetting it was for me, and honestly, with all the other sites on the web, not many people are going to tuff it out and find the answer. I would make it more "user friendly" just to keep it going! Great site though! Look forward to results.

I have numerous clients on the same Hootsuite account, but just one of them has a Twitter feed. When I try uploading a document to an account that is not attached to the Twitter feed, it automatically attaches that doc to the Ow.ly account w/ the Twitter login. This could get me in deep trouble w/ my clients when another's name pops up on their FB page!
I can't post pictures in another social networks without have a Twitter account.
sort this please HootSuite. We really need it.
It's nearly been 5 months since this became under review, how is the 'future release' coming along? As a primary photo sharing network it is hard to comprehend that hootsuite is unable to provide this obvious task.
What is the status of this feature? It really limits content options by not being able to schedule a photo on Facebook without a link.

I would love to see the feature added as well. I have a Facebook Page that I would like to be able to schedule a picture with a post without posting the picture as a link. Please work on this feature. I'm sure there are a lot of people who would be happy to see this happen. Also, it should be added as a free feature. Since a lot of social groups have it free to do.

I agree - who cares what browser one uses to post. There must be some financial incentive to HootSuite for including such messages.
