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
As of now, there is the capability to like, create comment stream, send to email, assign to, and send to conversation functions within a stream, but nothing that allows users to share a status posted by someone else. For organizations who have multiple department pages and who have employees that work together to share info, this is a major issue. Since I'm still in my free trial period, I'm actually thinking of looking at other social media management programs to see if they offer this capability because not having this function is a major hindrance in the work I need to accomplish on a daily basis.
to allow blank posting of Facebook where we can share only. no need of writing message as we need in doing posting in hootsuite. sometime we only need to share the page link and have delete the link from above. but when we remove and try to share it says can't post blank messsage. please allow us to do that. if you want you can keep that for premium users :)
Additional Facebook functionality
Our company's FB page shares a lot of other FB posts from FB pages we have liked. Currently you can only share instantaneously and within FB - it would be super useful to be able to schedule posts.
Add a "share that image" in the current post if a picture is present (Android)
Hi, Is there a plan in the works to make it possible to schedule 'shared' facebook posts?
add a share button so i can share from one of my fb pages to another within ur tool, like the share arrow that exists in the RSS App
I would love to Share a photo with my friends that I see others post on Facebook. Its a bit tiring that I have to log onto Facebook just to Share a post.
Integrate the Ability to "Share" Facebook Posts within Hootsuite
Facebook scheduling is very limited as it stands. Post scheduling is fine and good, but edgerank is all about engagement! Let us schedule facebook post sharing so we can have multiple personal accounts share a scheduled post from a linked business fan page.
Allow to sharing Facebook comment on Twitter, at least the admin comments, and linking back to the whole Facebook post
#1 necessity for me is to be able to view, share with and tweet/retweet to my Facebook friend lists. Without that feature I unfortunately can't use HootSuite.
I would like to share my friend's status.
When u sharing a post, it should include picture, picture descrition, and the post source, currently only includes post source
You should be able to time your sharing of a Facebook status or photograph. I don't know about everyone else but when I go onto a company Facebook profile it tends to be a 20 minute period during the day and if I see several things I want to share - it's going to annoy people sharing lots of things in such a short space of time. So it would be really good to save a status in Hootsuite and plan a time to send it.
When we click 'share' on a friends post we should be able to schedule when we would like to send it.
Allow sharing a post from one FB Page onto one of yours, while also using the auto post feature.
share feature for facebook and larger pictures
You should be able to "share" posts from Facebook that allow you to easily repost things your friends have posted. Would love if by clicking a "share" button, it automatically added all the info and links to the "compose message" box so you can edit and schedule it to go out later.
When someone puts up a post that I'd like to repost or share on my wall, I am not seeing how you do that. I am going back to FB which is exactly what I am trying to avoid.
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.
Thanks for the suggestion!
We’ll keep an eye on Facebook’s API and look into the possibility of implementing this in the future.
This is a MUST HAVE for a social media management platform!
Come on, Hootsuite. This is my one complaint about the whole thing. It shouldn't be sooo confusing to share a post from another organization's feed onto my organization's feed. Please. Help a girl out here.
It's available on mobile devices, so why not on the desktop interface? MUST HAVE feature in my opinion, and one major reason I've dragged my heels on subscribing to the service.
Yes, it would be extremely useful!
I dont get the point of using hootsuite to schedule posts in advance if you still have to mess with them at the time you want them to be posted. someone explain? Am I doing something wrong? Is that why none of my scheduled posts ever actually get posted?

This would help massively!!
This desperately needs to be a thing.
Just do it Hootsuite!
This would be very valuable to me.

Any update on when/if this feature will be made available? Would really cut a chunk out of my workload!
Randy Carbone commented
This feature is an absolute necessity!

I'm getting sick of coming back and seeing Hootsuite is continually ignoring much needed upgrades, after years worth of time. Guess it's time to ditch HS for another couple years...
adam signore commented
If I can't share a post on my facebook page as my page there is no brand building ability. hootsuite becomes useless. P.S. The Graph API supports this. some reference links
Any news on this????
Jeremy Frank commented
Looks like it is not going to happen
Almost 4 years later and still no progress at all ???
This is available on Buffer. Was comparing buffer to hootsuite and can't find it here. Buffer even has a button that shows up on each Facebook post that can be clicked and added to the schedule from Facebook.
Any update on whether this feature will be available soon?
Ditto - this is an extremely important must have feature. I purchased an annual subscription to hootsuite thinking this was available and finding out that it was not.
I agree! This is really a 'must have' feature! Thanks!
