Ability to "Share" Facebook posts within HootSuite

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.

        make it possible to share a Facebook post of another facebook page on the own Facebook page

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I totally agree about this fantastic feature. I can also suggest the ability to "Like" posts with different accounts at the same time!

        Hi please sort this out. I need to share posts between my Pages urgently. I am seriously thinking about halting my trial.

      • AdamAdam commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Thought this would already be a feature. Such a basic ask.
        C'mon guys!

        even providing the ability to use hyperlinks would be a great work around until FB's API is updated. or even simple html - hrefs. I like using the short urls for some things, but I would find it easier to use hyperlinks for many things.

        This is literally, the only thing lacking in Hootsuite for us. We get caught every now and again NOT posting a manual FB share. Will pay for this upgrade!!!!

        We would like to See this as an option as well. It literally takes away a big reason why we use Hootsuite

        Hi, i want to share shared post using hootsuite, when it will be available ?

      • TripTrip commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would have bought Hootie Suite pro tonight if it would have lete share facebook posts to multiple FB pages...

        Hi everybody, I think I figured out a solution. While it's not as elegant or simple as other methods I've seen (ex. adding a link next to the "share" button on the post in your Facebook timeline) it seems to work. I'm using Safari so I moved the Hootlet icon to my menu bar.

        1. Click on the actual post on your timeline so it opens in a new window.
        2. Copy the full URL from your browser's address bar.
        3. Launch Hootlet.
        4. Paste the URL you copied into the description field, overwriting the default link it generated.
        5. Select your page in the dropdown. (You'll see the post thumbnail at this point)
        6. Clear the URL from the description field and enter your custom post copy.
        7. Change the photo title (optional)
        8. Schedule your post or send it now.
        9. Close the Hootlet popup window.

        You can visit http://facebook.com/finewineanddesign to see how it looks with shared posts.
        Hope this helps you. If so, please give us a "like" ;)

        This would add more awesome to hoot suites' already awesome tool, think more sales

        I, too, am disappointed that this is not already a built in function. Social media is all about relationship building and engagement - sharing information is a integral part of this!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yeah, I would LOVE to be able to share posts on facebook, linkedin & google+. So far, I can only RT posts on twitter. The rest, I am limited to liking & commenting on other's posts, but no sharing! Kind of takes the point out of using social media management software.

        Without the ability to "Share," HootSuite is almost useless for my business purposes.

      • Marianne GrecoMarianne Greco commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Considering (I estimate) 80-90% of posts and tweets are simply sharing someone else's post; I agree that the feature should be a "no-brainer"
