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.
Ability to "Share" a Facebook post would be extremely useful for information proliferation. Such a tool would significantly enhance HootSuite's capabilities on data and profile management.205 votes
We’ll examine if this is available with Facebook’s API.
The auto fill for @replies does not cover all the people I follow… A general user search would also be great to have. AND all of this should be available on the iPhone app.199 votes
HootSuite auto fills the Twitter handles of users you have mentioned already. We’ll look at expanding this to a general user search as well.
Please support yearly, 2-year, etc payment plans. Extremely helpful for businesses/organizations.190 votes
We can now accommodate yearly billing for all accounts, regardless of how many team members, but only for Credit Card payments. If this interests you, upgrade to your free Pro trial here: hootsuite.com/plans/pro and enter valid credit information. Log into your account, then submit an annual billing request through here: http://ow.ly/9FctC. Note that only Pro users will be able to submit a ticket through that link.

we've already filtered our facebook friends so that we only see certain streams...if we are to really use hootsuite for facebook we need the same listing ability that we currently have for our twitter client176 votes
We’re happy to let you know that you can filter streams by friends, however lists created in Facebook are not yet able to be pulled in through the API.
To create a filtered Facebook stream within HootSuite please refer to the following Help Desk article:
Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please let me know!
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?174 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.
I'd like to have an option to change the timestamp format from 12 to 24 hours (streams and schedule), sometimes i still get confused by that as it's not my country default date format. Not much a problem, but it would be nice162 votes
We’re considering further ways to localize HootSuite for multinational use.
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.
Will there or is there in the pipelines a way to post/monitor the new Google+ communities via the hootlet and ability to add the stream on the dashboard. Cheers141 votes
With the new arrival of Google+ communities, we will further investigate the possibility of adding this in the future. Thank you for your requests!
Make the contacts sortable (name, klout, etc.); show aggregate data for all contacts (total 2nd order followers, avg klout, etc)130 votes
We plan further updates to the Contacts section of the dashboard. This is a feature we may consider.
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 would like to see an unread count in the tabs I create.
Here's a screenshot of what I mean: http://img.skitch.com/20100217-d5whaynh6ekaj444es217q55rr.jpg116 votes
Currently, HootSuite only loads one tab at a time in order to preserve bandwidth and API calls.
However, we do see how useful this feature may be, and may consider it for future updates to our API call process.
Ow.ly stats are great, but I'd like to use shortened URLs in other applications (Web pages, Facebook, etc.) and would still like to capture statistics on clickthroughs. Currently using bit.ly for this, but would prefer if I could do it with ow.ly.105 votes
We’ll explore further options with Ow.ly’s API for third party developers who want to build with it.
Be able to add a column which would allow chat with our personal facebook contacts102 votes
We aim to extend Facebook functionality in the 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.93 votes
We hope to enable this feature for a future release.
Could it be made possible to access trending topics by location. Currently we only see US topics, and being in England, they don't make much sense!82 votes
Now that HootSuite has acquired WhatTheTrend.com, we may roll this feature out in a future release.
Your tweet scheduling is pretty good, but I'd love the ability to be able to schedule tweets by the minute. Sometimes I schedule daily recaps that post one after another for 5 minutes in a row. Currently I have to use CoTweet to handle that.82 votes
Great idea! We’ll see if this is possible in the future.
This already displays in the pending/scheduled tweets column which is very useful when reviewing what has been loaded up as you know who posted what when working in a team environment. Once they've been sent, however, there is no access to that same information on Hootsuite but I'm not sure why.79 votes
We continue to review ways of improving team collaboration.
I would like an email alert when a someone posts on a facebook page's wall I am monitoring and also when a @mention is found. Greatly helps in quick feedback and customer relations.79 votes
We continue to consider new ways to extend Facebook functionality within HootSuite.
HootSuite allows us to schedule a Facebook wall post to our own wall, but it would be nice to schedule a FB wall post to a friend's wall (for example, allow me to schedule a wall post for a friend's birthday). Thanks!77 votes
We’re considering further ways to extend Facebook functionality with HootSuite.
