    Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us!

    Currently the Instagram API that HootSuite uses supports read-only, meaning that within the HootSuite web dashboard, users can read their feeds, but not post images. However, pending updates to the Instagram API, we hope to be able to re-examine this capability in the future.

    To view your Instagram account in HootSuite, check out the Instagram 3rd party app in our app directory at

    Thank you for using HootSuite!

        Any update on this guys?

        We managed to get on the private beta for which enables us to post to Instagram.

        Surely if they can do it, so you can?

        Hopper has worked great but it would be good to be integrated with Hootsuite.

        When will we be able to post to Instagram from Hootsuite ?
        This feature is critical before I choose Hootsuite. Please reply

        Instagram is getting bigger every day, We need post Instagram via de Hootsuite dashboard! Come on guys!, you can! or I will need to contract another social media management who can :(

        Hi there,
        Any idea when this will be resolved - it is frustrating that I can't schedule posts via Hootsuite for my instagram account... have you got a date yet?
        Look forward to hearing from you,
        Amy from NZ :-)

        Waiting, waiting, waiting...It's good question that why the others like schedugram can get access to post on Instagram via 3rd party management tool but not HootSuite!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        so disappointed i cant schedule i-gram on hootsuite, was the main reason i went pro....i had a whole years worth of content ready to roll....aaarrghhhh it doesnt make sense....hope they figure this out. anyone know of a program that does this?

      • GCGC commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree with Patrick, it doesn't make sense especially since Facebook works on Hootsuite and Facebook owns Instagram. Come on Hootsuite make a push for it others have already! I'm sure you'll get more users willing to pay up for the feature.

      • Patrick CamilleriPatrick Camilleri commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        yeah apparently can do it, why can't hootsuite do it too. didn't try the tool but they claim to be able to post/schedule to instagram. looks professional, not a scam. HOOTSUITE pleeeease we need this feature urgently. We would appreciate an update on this (why instamizer can do it and you guys can't)!

        Hello, this tool exists outside ( ), ie the Instagram API already allows this service is of utmost importance that tool making all agencies use external tools + HootSuite which would be wonderful to do it all only in a panel , see the possibility to start 2015 as the industry's best tool! Big hug!

      • KalevKalev commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is definitely something that is needed. It is difficult to manage a brand across all forms of social media if they're not able to post from Hootsuite.

      • BrookeBrooke commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Why is it that schedugram can do scheduled instagram posts but not Hoot suite? We need one place to schedule all social media. Who will be the first to offer this??!! (I'd also like a tele-portal machine invented please ;))

      • Andrew HolmesAndrew Holmes commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yep, please give instagram a nudge - this would be a great (and much needed) addition to Hootsuite

        Posting from Instagram would make me switch instantly from SproutSocial to Hootsuite. Just saying.
