How can we improve Hootsuite?

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)

    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

    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.

        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.

        Hi there,

        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.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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 SwentekSean Swentek commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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 JorgensonPaul Jorgenson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

        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 OwenEdward Owen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Still needed on 04/14/13. Looks like people have been requesting for a while. My first request, but boy would it be nice!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agree, and please let us hide and unhide icons for profiles that aren't often used. Thanks!

      • TaufanPRTaufanPR commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, please fix this. I need to move icons for my networks. Thanks before :)
