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.

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

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

      • RonRon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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 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"

        Would also love to see this happen. (With the added benefit of being able to schedule the share or add it into the auto scheduler mix.)

        I assumed this would be an option. I am thinking about cancelling simply for this not being possible.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes...this would be a great tool for me as a business professional as we are all about promoting our clients.

        Sharing posts adds value because it allows you to track the history of that post - while also acknowledging the source, which is only polite.

        Any updates on this? This is a basic function that all social media platforms have, why does hootsuite not have it? And why has it not been added after all this time of people requesting it? This thread started two years ago! And while adding this functionality, scheduling the shares need to be added with it.
