      Hello everyone,

      Thank you for your feedback and continued support.

      Hootsuite is happy to announce the release of our new @Mentions feature, allowing tagging of user profiles on Twitter and Instagram, and Pages on Facebook.

      Important note: due to API limitations, in order to mention a Facebook Page, the post must be sent from a Facebook Page.

      This means that mentions of Facebook Pages from Facebook Personal Profiles is currently not possible. Mentioning Facebook Personal Profiles from any account is also not currently possible.

      Thank you,

    • Allow the creation and editing of Facebook events.

      I think being able to create Facebook events for each Facebook page from the dashboard would be extremely useful. That way, I wouldn't have to leave my HS dashboard to create and edit events and I could also send links to the events via twitter and other networks.

          With the new arrival of Google+ communities, we will further investigate the possibility of adding this in the future. Thank you for your requests!

            We’d love to add this functionality in the future to update event pages. Thanks for your suggestion!

          • Multiple photos to a single Facebook post

            Facebook now allows you to post multiple photos to a single post (without using photo albums). It'd be very beneficial if Hootsuite allowed for this as well. I tried upload multiple photos to a single post (using Hootsuite) and only one showed up whereas the other only showed as an ow.ly link. This is useful for showing one product at various angles or in different colors. Thanks.

              Thank you all for your feedback,

              To confirm, this feature to upload multiple photos to a single Facebook post is not currently available through the Facebook API, but we are discussing this feature possibility with Facebook

              Thank you once again

            • Add the Twitter 'interactions' tab to the stream so users no longer miss important interactions with their followers.

              We constantly miss RT's notices and other interactions with our users since Hootsuite doesn't allow users to import 'interactions' data. Please add ASAP!

              • allow images to appear in Facebook group postings rather than links

                It is better to have the images uploaded as it is able to draw attention of potential clients. The image will auto describe our advertising status in multiple biz groups.

                • LinkedIn University page posting

                  LinkedIn now has University Pages and as an Admin of one I would like to be able to post directly to that page just like LinkedIn Company and Group pages.

                          On Google+ Brands you now divid your posts using Collections, which is a great tool.

                          All our future Google+ posts will be to collections, so I wonder if you have a time frame for when you will support posting to the same?

                          Thank you for a great product.

                                    • Build on the great new LinkedIn groups functionality by allowing posts to the group jobs tab

                                      As LinkedIn is heavily used by companies for recruitment it would make sense to add the ability to post jobs to the group jobs tab instead of only allowing posts to the discussions

                                          Hello! Thanks for reaching out to us!

                                          Thank you for your interest in resume the HootSuite integration with IFTTT! While this is not on our roadmap at this time, we hope to resume integration in the future.

                                          Thank you!

                                        • add the possibility to remove the hashtag "#" when posting differently than twitter ?

                                          It's good to have the "#" symbol for twitter.
                                          Then, when your post is going to facebook or linkedin, you have the "#" symbol before some words.
                                          But for people who don't know the meaning of the "#", it seems strange .. so it maybe a good idea to have an option to remove the "#" when posting to Facebook or Linkedin (elsewhere thant twitter).
                                          Thank you.
