allow a photo to be posted to Instagram from your Hootsuite account
It seems silly that we can use the Hootsuite interface to interact with Instagram, but not post the one photo to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. What is the point of managing the process of liking and commenting on photos for Instagram, but not being able to use it's primary function i.e. sharing photos
How do I add Instagram as a social network on Hootsuite, and is it possible to post directly to Instagram from Hootsuite- in the same manner as one would post to for example several FB-pages from the "publication" function? Thanks in advance for the reply/help
There is no way to post on Istagram through Hootsuite. If you can it would be most ideal to those using Hootsuite for work purposes!
I'd like to be able to make one post that goes to Instagram, Twitter, and my Facebook page.
add i g, feel me
Post to Instagram
we can't post in instagram the available options now are only to view and like and comment and search !!! but we can't post !!!
Instagram Photo Posts
I would love the ability to post photos directly to Instagram from the Stream.
You guys really have to figure out a way to make it possible to post on to Instagram from the framework of Hootsuite. It is a major inconvenience that, although I can do all my other scheduling there, I have to use Instagram to post to Instagram. This feature would probably push me over the line to upgrade to pro from basic because it would be a complete package for me at that point.
I know you're working on it. Just needing to add my voice to the choir.
It's not available on your hoot suite app. When will it be available as one of the social medias I can add and post to?
It'd be wildly helpful to have the ability to post to Instagram via Hootsuite.
We NEED to be able to post to INSTAGRAM via hoot suite. We hate using our personal phones at work while we're on camera ;)
I love the features that are currently on hootsuite for instagram but it would be great if we could actually post photos from hootsuite too!
instagram isn't in the choices for adding a social network. I'd like to send updates to instagram when adding to other sites.
Would be great if the Instagram allowed you to post and not just view the streams
It would be great if we could post and schedule pics from Hootsuite to Instagram
When I compose a post in Hootsuite there is an area to select which social media networks I will post to.
Why can I only select Facebook, Twitter and Google+? Why can't I also post to Tumblr, Pintrest, Flickr and Instagram at the same time? Hootsuite allows me to follow those networks (except pintrest) and post to them from their own feeds... so why in the WORLD can't I include them in my when I want to post to all networks at once?
It makes no sense. PLEASE hootsuite, FIX this. If you do I would upgrade my account to a paid account because this is the ONE thing I need... To be able to compose a post and post it to ALL the major social networks at once. Isn't that the point of your service? So why can't I do it?
Post to instagram from Hootsuite
Post to Instagram
Thank you all for your interest in this suggestion.
At this time, Instagram has not opened photo posting abilities to third party applications. Currently the only way to upload an image to Instagram is from the mobile app, it is not even possible from their web version.
We’ll continue to monitor progress with interest should this feature become available in the future.

You can post images to Instagram from your desktop using http://gramblr.com/uploader/ - I just used it now and worked seamlessly. You can then monitor, comment etc using Hootsuite. This is the best solution I have found. Leave feedback on if you find it works too and spread to others.

Unbelievable... How can it be that hootsuite can not offer a possibility to schedule Instagram posts? I want to use Instagram for marketing purposes but I am really disappointed that hootsuite can not provide this service.
I agree about the false advertising with hootsuite. It's also ridiculous of Instagram. I will be using Instagram much less because of the difficulty incorporating it into my marketing plan. I will add to it, but it will be haphazard, at best.

My issue is only with the false advertising of Hootsuite of a feature they don't really offer. The very first item under the Instagram App key features is not true. I've spent hours troubleshooting what I thought was an error on my part, or of my browser settings, or even of my browser extensions. As a last resort, I go to the forums and find out the truth..... NOT a good experience with Hootsuite.
"Instagram App: Overview
-Share your Instagram photos with your social networks. (!?!)
-View your photos and a feed of photos for the users you follow, popular photos and your 'likes', all in your dashboard.
-View and post comments and 'likes'.
-Keyword search and clickable hashtags to view related photos.
-View user information; number of photos, plus follower and following count."

This is not Hootsuite's problem. It's Instagram's idiocy.

Yes this is a very stupid aspect of Instagram. They are morons.

This is my biggest issue with instagram! My business NEEDS this!
This would be very useful!
It would be great if you can schedule instagram posts as with Facebook & Twitter.
Yes, this is the only thing missing from Hootsuite! It's a must have for businesses
