Allow us to drag and drop sort the social network icons on the top right (the ones we checkmark)
It is difficult to to eye scan all the social network icons inside the platform to which I might want to stream a message. It would be TEN times better to be able to sort them from left to right in the order that I prefer. And it would be even better if I were able to add separators (like Firefox bookmarks) in between the set of group profiles. (icons - upper portion of website)
I don't know how to orders accounts on the post selector, and i think it should be a good option.
I cannon seem to maintain my numerous accounts in alphabetical order. It is time consuming to do this manually and it inevitably reverts to chronological order after a few days (it seems to mirror the OEM Twitter app in this regard).
HI it would be helpfull to put social netowrks into categories to make it easy to send different messages to different profiles. for example i am a memeber of twentyfive groups on facebook.under these categories (wedding,business,funk DMZ,mumathom,business) it is very difficult to select to select a profile just by drop down menu. so i end up sending conflicted messaegs to wrong group. it would help to put my profile in categories which makes it to select a category before i send message.
Allow us to rearrange the social media icons in the message bar. Grouping by company would make much more sense. grouping by social platform is utterly useless and the favorite feature doesn't work the same.
The avatars at the top of the web dashboard, next to the tweet function, why do they have to remain in alphabetical order (as listed in settings/social networks)? I want to list them from in a specific order that fits my business needs. Using hootsuite for ipad, everything is more flexible to set these kind of things up the way you want/need them.
Not having this ability is making me seriously consider moving to another app. I just have too many social networks I manage and need to organize them.
Now that i have your attention. Pinning and favorites is not the same thing as being able to configure groups of networks for easy message sending. Please create a grouping function so i no longer forget to put a network on the list!
Again, please allow us to create network groups so we can select a group with one click!
Because limiting accounts to alphabetical order is lame.
Allow us to sort our social media profiles into groups, this would be especially useful for those of us that use hootsuite to manage profiles for multiple companies.
I have a number of different twitter accounts for business and social - some I use a lot, some not so much. I'd like to be able to change the order and group them in my desired order.
I would like to put my personal networks (Facebook & Twitter) grouped together on one side, with my business accounts on another.
I would like the capability to drag and rearrange the order of the networks, especially since you change the order I'm used to with your new update.
Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us!
While we don’t have any plans on our roadmap for changing the order of the social network profiles in the social network picker at this time, it is an idea we are exploring.
In the meantime, to learn more about our current social profile picker (and see some tips and tricks for it) head to our helpdesk article at https://help.hootsuite.com/entries/21774775-Tips-Tricks-The-Social-Profile-Picker.
Thank you for using HootSuite!

How can you not let us rearrange our social media?! It's a social media scheduler / tool!
It's also not a difficult code change.
I want to able to drag and sort my social channels. Or at least want the option of grouping by brand rather than by social platform.

Throw a +1 from me into this mix. I've been waiting for this for years.
What's the current status on this request?
Another webguy commented
I can only join in on this request. It is critical to be able to sort and save the order of the social accounts in the "Send to" dropdown. Also needs a remake here so it´s easier and more failsafe which network you chose to post to. In current setup it is too easy to choose and send to wrong accounts if you run multiple.
If this is not fixed I will jump ship and take our business elsewhere.
I can't understand the reason for not letting users to rearrange the social network profiles. I manage multiple accounts and I have accidentally post the articles to a wrong network. It seems like an easy thing to do, and after 2 years and almost 50 requests, I see that this is not implemented.
Yes, this is critical! Everything from Wordpress to Google+ to mobile apps to (hitting closer to home) services like Buffer allow this kind of control over resources. Why not Hootsuite?
This is SO crucial... you used to be able to order social networks and for some reason, that ability was removed. Please bring it back... for those of us with many networks to manage, the blunt "favouriting" behaviour is useless.
Please Engineers of Hootsuite,
Increase the area to choose the groups of facebook, and make it more easily to work, increasing the size of groups icons. A system with check boxes would make it better too...
This think to pass the mouse over the icon of the group, to know the name of group is very difficult and waste time....
Thanks and Regards!

Couldn't agree more - makes Hootsuite nearly unusable with multiple networks using the same avatar (e.g. the company's brand).
November 2013… Over three and a half years since the original suggestion came up and is still badly needed. Please!
Sean Swentek commented
It would be highly beneficial to also be able to rename the networks on the Hootsuite side, in order to tell those apart with similar avatars.
Paul Jorgenson commented
October 2013 and this is still badly needed. My corporate account has many different accounts (in English and French) and being able to re-order them would be hugely helpful.
Melanie Renzulli commented
August 2013 and this is still needed. I need to be able to rearrange the order in which the networks are displayed as some of the avatars on my company accounts are so similar I fear that I'll be tweeting out information from the wrong account. Please consider this feature.
Edward Owen commented
Still needed on 04/14/13. Looks like people have been requesting for a while. My first request, but boy would it be nice!
Bump. Please... PLEASE.
Lou Pardi commented
Agree, and please let us hide and unhide icons for profiles that aren't often used. Thanks!
Yes, please fix this. I need to move icons for my networks. Thanks before :)
Sandor Benko commented
Let us drag drop sort, or at least group them in a sensible manner. I have 100+ facebook groups placed between my twitter profiles and my linkedin profile. ridiculous, this is why I won't be using Pro when free trial expires
