        I don't get that Hootsuite acquired Seesmic which had chat feature... why didn't you implement that too? Now we don't have an app that worked perfectly fine with chat and everything else.. and now with Hootsuite we don't have it.
        Normally when you acquire another service is to improve yours I believe. In this case didn't happen.

        I would have to make an comment on this as well.
        Like other stated, there is no use into using this service if there is no FB chat.

        Please give us an update on this.

        I have an image that posts fine when I go straight through facebook, but Hootsuite does not want to take it. How can I be sure to get the same user experience when trying to add photos or albums to a post?

        When posting multiple images (3) in hootsuite then scheduling, I can't see all the images that are set to go out with that post when I go in to edit the scheduled post. How do I check this to be sure all the images I want are in there?

        since 2011 this has been requested and is not available in 2014. Yeah I don't think so. Not getting my money until it works.

        I really need this, absolutely no point me using this platform without this feature. I'll be leaving if this isn't added in the very near future.

        This seems like a basic functionality that is missing from personal accounts.

        May prevent me from using it - the whole point of this service is integration and the lack of need for multiple pages/apps.

        Hi - we're evaluating HootSuite and other management systems. Does anyone know of any systems that have the ability to manage Facebook messages (eg. on profile rather than pages)? This would be a really useful feature for us....

        "We aim to extend Facebook functionality in the future," per Chris from Hootsuite Nov. 4, 2011. From about two years ago. Where is this? I agree that it's crazy that I'd have to go to the actual Facebook app to PM someone. Then why don't I just stay there, instead of coming back to HootSuite? Is it an API issue? I must say that Facebook's API is pretty sucky in the first place.

        Hi, I cannot understand how it advertises to manage accounts from one page but I have to go back to Facebook to check personal messages and find out who liked status updates or made comments, makes no sense, also, it may just be me but when I update twitter feed and tap more, I then have to scroll backwards to catch up with the messages, why does it not start from the last message read??

        I agree. I have just started using the Hoot Suite but the lack of Facebook's chat facility and pm inbox from private profile is really a nuisance.

      • fxufxu commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Has this happened yet?

        I JUST downloaded HooteSuite and it's a great idea- but- the purpose is totally defeated if I have to open Facebook on a separate tab to use my chat and then log in and out to chat from each acccount...

        Being able to monitor and send private messages/replies to my own messages in HootSuite would definitely be another nudge toward purchasing the paid-for account. At the moment, the monthly price is a bit too high for the additional 'Pro' features I'd use, but it's frustrating to not be able to monitor my basic accounts and pages. I don't need reports and analytics and the other "upgrade" features ... just to be able to access all pages/groups, a couple more twitter accounts, and (maybe) get my PMs. However, I might consider it just for the ability to access my main FB messages.
