Currently, when I see a story on Facebook wall that I want to post to my Facebook page or tweet it, I have to go to Facebook.com to share it. I would be great if the "share" button from Facebook was one of the options in Hootsuite. This is especially useful when I want to post something to multiple pages or schedule a post for a future date.54 votes
We hope to further extend Facebook functionality.
Currently, you can not create and post a new photo album to Facebook through Hootsuite. We create new albums for almost every event and like to post those new albums as an update - impossible through Hootsuite (meaning I can never schedule this kind of content ahead of time, which is a killer on weekends).54 votes
We’ll examine if this feature is available with Facebook’s API.
Presently, there is no way to block someone from Dashboard without reporting them as Spam. The only way to non-spam block someone is to do so through Contacts, which means they must be following you or you them, and it is unwieldy if you're blocking many people at once.
I recommend an option in dashboard beside "Report Spammer" which is simply "Block".50 votes
We’ll consider including this as a feature in a future release.
Google Analytics is not suiteable for german data law rights. Soit would be nice if you implemented Piwik because it is more and more popular.49 votes
We’re considering other Analytics platforms to integrate into HootSuite.
I would like my pictures to post to FB groups, and not just my personal wall, and of course have the picture be embedded...not a link to a picture.49 votes
We’ll look at further ways to include photos with more Facebook functionality.
If you post a YouTube link manually it embeds on your Facebook page.
Currently, Hootsuite creates a thumbnail image and puts up a text link to a YouTube video instead of embedding it straight on Facebook.
This is way less attractive when a user is browsing their feed, so I want to suggest embedding for YouTube (and Soundcloud) implemented when posting links from Hootsuite.48 votes
We’ll look into ways of embedding YouTube videos into posts sent to Facebook.
HootSuite only allows users to add text to the beginning of each tweet. HootSuite calls this 'prepending'. It would be helpful for those of us working with RSS to add copy such as hashtags at the end of our tweets.48 votes
Adding options for postpended text is a feature we are considering.
It would be awesome if there was the capability to customize the colors/themes of HootSuite Desktop as with other Twitter clients. Even if the selection was limited to just several choices.47 votes
You can choose between three theme options under Preferences (Classic, Blue Steel and Magnum). We’ll look to add more color customization in the future.
Thanks for your feedback.
We hope to add additional functionality to Facebook in the upcoming future.
Right now, the shortest HootSuite update interval is 2 minutes (unless you pull a manual update). TweetDeck has implemented realtime Twitter updating. HootSuite should do the same.45 votes
We are currently considering ways to stream social network data.
$49.00 is still too much for this service, especially when it won’t even work with the Hootlet bookmark.45 votes
We continue to consider ways to offer value to HootSuite customers.
allow users to share tabs between teams (including subsequent columns). You should also be able to assign a column to a tab.44 votes
Great idea, and one to consider for a future release.
It would be nice to be able to see a stream of my tweets favorited by other users. Push notifications for favorites would be the next step.42 votes
We’ll examine if this is possible with Twitter’s API.
Please get rid of the "you've been inactive for over an hour" dialog. Who cares if I have! I don't tweet every minute of every hour 24 hours a day. I often just glance at Hootsuite on my laptop once in a while while I work to see if anything worthwhile has come up. I don't reply or post at least once an hour and shouldn't be reminded of it. This dialog is completely useless and extremely annoying!42 votes
This dialogue box currently exists to preserve bandwidth. We’ll consider other alternatives for this function.
It's good to have the "#" symbol for twitter.
Then, when your post is going to facebook or linkedin, you have the "#" symbol before some words.
But for people who don't know the meaning of the "#", it seems strange .. so it maybe a good idea to have an option to remove the "#" when posting to Facebook or Linkedin (elsewhere thant twitter).
Thank you.42 votes
We’ll examine further options for hashtags with different social networks.
We’d like to add more features to Ow.ly.
Currently, only the old style retweets can be scheduled. I would like to be able to schedule the new style retweets as well.41 votes
We’ll look into if this is possible with Twitter’s API.
The reports look great, but at 10x the monthly cost of a pro membership, they seem very overpriced, considering most of the data you can get for free from their respective networks.41 votes
We continue to review ways to offer value to HootSuite customers.
Sometimes I post images which I like the user to be able to view on the Facebook page without clicking the owl.ly link. It would be great if these images could be uploaded to the Facebook page (with a chosen image folder).40 votes
We’ll consider this functionality for future releases. Thank you for your feedback!
Like Gtalk, Msn, OCS, or other instant messenger, when you press the ESCape key, it closes the current window. For the browser hootsuite I would like to have a similiar aproach. Sometimes im writting a tweet, suddenly I give up that idea and dont want to submit it. I'd like to, when i press the ESCape key, have the box that i was typing getting cleared and closed.39 votes
This is a great feature suggestion that would improve HootSuite’s usability.
