Images uploaded directly to Google+
Similar to this http://feedback.hootsuite.com/forums/40182-hootsuite-com-web-dashboard/suggestions/2396546-upload-images-directly-to-twitter-com-not-to-ow-l I'd like to request the ability to upload images directly to Google+ pages, rather than having to link to http://ow.ly/i/.
Being unable to do this makes sharing images through Hootsuite across all three networks pointless. You're better off doing it manually on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter for the best optimisation as the images are larger, clearer and more appealing when opened/viewed directly in the various social networks!
Great suggestion! We’re always looking for ways to improve the appearance of posts to social networks through HootSuite.

Same issue here... there seems to be no solution for this... seems we will have to get back to old ways of posting directly on the google+ page

Same here. It would be super useful.
I've been asking for this for ages. At first I was told this by Hootsuite helpdesk:
"This specifically has now been identified to be an issue requiring investigation from our development team. I am subsequently escalating your ticket to them for further review and they will be working on a fix as I type this. An update will be launched as soon as possible to correct the issue that you have been experiencing."
"I hope this update finds you well! I wanted to be in touch to let you know this issue remains open with our Development Team and that we're anticipating a full resolution early in December. We've been working with the teams over at Google and are now awaiting their release of an updated API platform, in order to build a fix for how thumbnails are generated when posting URLs through HootSuite."
but the other day I got this:
"this is a fantastic feature suggestion which you can submit to us for review on our Feedback Forum"
So what is going on???? I've submitted it as a feature suggestion but I'd love to know if this is even on the cards because posting on FB, G+ and Twitter simultaneously is currently pointless and better done manually which defeats the object of using Hootsuite for me personally.
Yes it'll be realy great if you can improve this.
Please please please do this!!! At the moment when I post images to G+ thru Hootsuite the images end up on the G+ page nowhere near full size! Posting images to Facebook thru Hootsuite is fine, the images show up nice and large on FB, why can't it be the same for G+?
At the moment the G+ integration is pointless because I'm having to post images to G+ manually to get the images to show up full size! I really hope you guys get this feature improved soon!
