    • Allow videos to be posted to Instagram

      It's great to be able to manage Instagram accounts via Hootsuite now! Posting videos to Instagram via Hootsuite would make it that much better.

      • Improve Hootlet

        Hello everyone,

        The Hootsuite Hootlet recently underwent some broad changes in order to align more closely with Facebook's Platform Policy, specifically section 2.3. You can find an explanation of this policy at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/review/prefill

        Due to the nature and urgency behind these changes, we were forced to make some uncomfortable compromises around Hootlet’s behaviour. These changes were broadly applied to all content regardless of the ultimate network being published to as a matter of expediency, not as a design preference.

        Work is currently underway to restore much of Hootlet’s original functionality, while remaining compliant with Facebook’s Platform Policy. The teams behind…

          Hello everyone,

          Today we will begin rolling out the latest in our series of Hootlet improvements. The new features will begin appearing for some users at 11:30 AM PDT, and should be available to everyone by the end of the day.

          This release has the following improvements:

          - Improved graphical Link Previews

          - A Live Preview for text-only networks such as Twitter, which shows you exactly how your post will appear

          - Improved logic for preserving text you typed while switching your target networks

          - Writing a custom message will now not insert the Page Title into your Twitter posts, allowing you full control over your message

          - Pasting the link URL into the message box will prevent Hootlet from auto-inserting the link into your Twitter message, giving you full control over where the link appears in your message, allowing you to place hashtags or mentions at the end,…

        • It would be awesome to see Instagram able to post automatically, instead of having to be redirected to the app at time of post.

          Can we have an option to post automatically to Instagram? Instead of being redirected to the app?

              • Create a stream containing just comments

                It would be nice to have a stream with just comments (starting with the newest) for all the channels. It makes it more time consuming to have to go through each post to see if any new comments have come in. This option was on a previous platform that we had with another company. It would allow us to see all the comments that are coming in and we would be able to reach and assist those who need out help. Thank you!

                • Shared Drafts Among Team Members.

                  Sharing drafts among team members would be a huge help.So that one team member can create the drafts and another person can review, approve and then schedule.

                  • Should show Social Rating from multiple brands

                    Currently Hootsuits dash only shows KLOUT ratings of the user. This is monopolozing control of the industry in favor of KLOUT. Hootsuite should strongly consider liaising with and/or including visibility of ratings from KRED, NAYMZ and other prominent Social Rating apps.

                    • support for m3u8 videos in tweets

                      Videos in tweets don't work properly.
                      It's ok if the video file is `.mp4` but I often get tweets in my feed which link through to `.m3u8` ...when I click on those I don't get a video player, the browser downloads the file.

                      eg
                      https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/682617316081831937/pu/pl/K89xoj1aGVdti_zk.m3u8

                      I would like all embedded videos in tweets to play properly.

                      I'm on OSX 10.11.3, Chrome 47.0

                      • add the ability to change the name of social networks

                        Currently, the social network shows the name from the actual page... however in the case of agencies, we sometimes have clients who have multiple social networks for different branches, but the name of the page is the same (Google+ for example). It would be awesome to have the ability to rename the social network so we could differentiate these pages without affecting the actual social media page.

                        • Grouping tabs/streams into projects/clients

                          Under the stream tab I have open all the tabs holding all the streams I need, however it is a lot and looks messy. I would love to be able to group 5 tabs together.

                          example: I have my personal social media tabs Twitter, Facebook ect each with their own streams but I want to group my tabs under personal so when i open it I only see these tabs so on.

                          This extra bit of filing would really help me in my social media marketing as its very confusing at the moment and is one of the things I…

                              • Support Facebook's Audience Optimization for Publishers

                                Facebook has launched Audience Optimization for Publishers which allows posts to be recommended for a specific interest group. This is important as taking part allows those posts to be analysed for reach against those same interest groups. In other words; did Interest Group A or Interest Group B respond better to the post?

                                This feels fundamental. This is exactly the sort of analysis Hootsuite Pro users need to do and it is supported by your competitors.

                                  • add the ability to customize copy for different social networks!

                                    Is it possible to post copy into Hootsuite and then alter it on the Compose message based on which channel it will be posted to?

                                      Allow users to choose posting frequency of different social networks in Autoschedule. As an example, I could post on Twitter 5 times a day, but post on LinkedIn only 2 times a day.
