Facebook now allows 5k characters in a wall post. Hootsuite still only allows 420 characters to be published to your wall on Facebook, which was the old limit. Update Hootsuite please so we can publish 5k characters! Thanks! :)19 votes
We hope to increase the limit in the near future.
Some emails clients like thunderbird add an small icon when an email has been replied or forwarded. To keep tracking of tweets, mentions, DMs or Facebook comments it would be nice to have this kind of icons in each tweet. In this way, we can see if a mention or DM to us has been answered to avoid forgeting to do it.19 votes
We’re considering further ways to make HootSuite user-friendly.
I have a private twitter account. I am currently unable to approve/accept new follower requests unless I log on to my computer and accept by going online. I've tried doing this on my smart phone but I have not yet found an app that does this. If I use my Internet browser on my smart phone I CANNOT do it either. Twitter in the mobile browser doesn't have this option either.19 votes
Great idea! We’ll look at adding this functionality in the future.
Cleaning out the direct message inbox either with Twitter or though clients like HootSuite is a nightmare having to do it one message at a time. The ability to select multiple messages (even a "select all" capability) then delete those selected would be a huge plus.19 votes
Thanks for the great suggestion! I can see how this would be useful, we’ll look into the possibility of adding this feature in the future.
Option to remove Klout scores from your profile. I have removed and revoked all access to klout due to privacy issues so not happy that it is still being displayed. By default your application is breaching my privacy19 votes
This is a good suggestion.
I like the way that Seesmic Desktop has different color columns for replies and different colors for direct messages. It helps assimilate information much faster! I think that color coding the columns will help a lot!19 votes
We’re always considering ways to enhance HootSuite’s UI.
ensuring the formatting is exact on the .csv format is glitchy and time consuming. Would also
be better if more than 50 could be done at a time.19 votes
We’re considering further ways to make bulk scheduling easier for users.
HootSuite Web needs to support RELATIVE timestamps instead of actual times only. (i.e. it should say that something happened "1 minute ago" not "at 4:33pm").
This is the default for both Twitter and Facebook natively, so it seems odd that HootSuite doesn't support it.
On a side note, the HootSuite iPhone app already DOES support this -- so, clearly, the data is readily available. We just need an option for it in the web interface.

This would be a nice option to have.
The IFTTT integration has been down since Hootsuite implemented new security. Please fix it! It is a lifeline for automating social media.18 votes
The new CSV export of ow.ly stats is great, but please include the clicked URL and time of click so that I can cross-analyze this with the rest of my data (Google Analytics, marketing campains, support tickets) in @gooddata18 votes
Mulling this idea over to see how to implement and what to include.
With the integration of timeline on facebook pages, there is a new box call Recommendations.
Can you see if it is possible to integrate this feature in hootsuite, so we can monitor all the recommendations sent to our page?18 votes
Interesting idea. We can see how this would be really useful.
I would like to be able to use the calender scheduler to schedule smaller bulk posts by just clicking on what days it should be posted.18 votes
We hope to make batch scheduling more user-friendly to users.
I would like to see a gadget for iGoogle home pages so I can manage my sm from my homepage dashboard using just one gadget.18 votes
If anyone is interested in developing this, you can contact us at http://hootsuite.com/app-directory
Something like Chromebird where new messages are highlighted until clicked (or read) that way I can run hootsuite in the background, but know what are the new status updates right away!18 votes
We’ll look into further ways to enhance usability with HootSuite in regards to new messages.
Most web sites which auto-detect the device/browser in use allow the user to choose to use the full web site or a mobile/limited site. HootSuite does not offer such an option for Android Honeycomb/tablet (Xoom) users, and forces them to download and use the sub-par HootSuite Android app. The same restriction is not made on an iPad / iOS, where Safari can be used for the HS Dashboard.18 votes
Support for Android tablets is on our road map.
Sometimes you try to share a link in your Facebook Page and the thumbnail Hootsuite will get you from the link is not working with you.
So you upload your own image to use it as a thumbnail for that link.18 votes
We’ll examine if this is possible with Facebook’s API.
YouTube Insights as modules within the Analytics.
You also need to reduce the prices. They're way overpriced since you can get the same information for free from their respective places.18 votes
Now that YouTube has been added to the App Directory, this is an interesting suggestion.
Allow AutoSchedule to work with more than 5 social networks at one time.18 votes
This would be a tremendous feature to add, and one many of our users would find useful.
Seeing how we have an extension for Firefox and Chrome, we see how a Safari extension could be useful too.
Until then, we recommend using the Hootlet in Safari’s bookmark bar:
I would like to have a column so I can see when someone writes on my wall or on my page's wall.
I'd also like to be able to see incoming messages from my FB inbox and be able to reply to those messages as well.17 votes
It is now possible to monitor your Facebook wall posts within HootSuite.
As for Inbox messages, we’re considering further ways to extend Facebook functionality with HootSuite.
