How can we improve Hootsuite?

Relationship Status

Hootsuite for web should show the relationship between my account(s) and the person whose profile I'm viewing in much the same way Hootsuite Lite for Android does

    You are now able to see your Twitter Relationships through the user bio pop up in the HootSuite dashboard.

    Click on a Twitter handle in any stream to open their user bio and down at the bottom you will see Relationships. It tells you if they are following your handle(s) and gives you the option to Follow or Unfollow directly.

    Thank you all for your patience!

        Crazy you don't indicate on ea person who is/is not following back! Twitter does it easily.

        Agree with Gary Ennis, clicking on "View all relationships" I can see only few of my twitter accounts, how can I see all of them?

      • Gary EnnisGary Ennis commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It's not working... or rather - it only shows the relationship status for just a few of my twitter accounts. Clicking on the "View all relationships" only shows 3 of my twitter accounts - we have LOTS more!.. and unfortunately the few that I'd like to check more often than others don't appear :(

        Come on Hootsuite team. This is a really big issue. Don't let the vote count fool you. I actually started using official Twitter (app & website) because of two reasons: 1. Twitter handles Favs better (HS only displays my Fav stream on the dashboard - I want my tweets that are Fav'd too) 2. Relationship status (Twitter lets you see if someone is following back quickly). Your app displays this information nicely. Why doesn't HS on the web do it? You divide contacts into two tabs - People Following Me & People I Follow. That is not enough. This is all about making relationship building easier. Hootsuite is supposed to be the top dog for this. Show us that you understand. I thought at one point that you fixed item 2. Now that I'm back to using HS due to Twitter's blue line fiasco, I see that item 2 is still an issue. Please fix this. PLEASE.

        This to me is the single greatest feature missing from Hootsuite. +one million up votes. Why can't I find out if someone is following me by looking at their profile in Hootsuite? I have to go to to see that info? Even better, show it at the tweet level. But at the profile popup level, its a MUST HAVE.

        You have that info, display it. Please!

        I never understood why my Android App had greater functionality then my browser Hootsuite. This is incredibly important to know and extremely helpful.

        Also, one NEW function you've started to provide is actually more of a nuisance. Anytime I click on a twitter link in my browser or email - if I'm logged into Hootsuite it opens a HS profile window for them vs. taking me to the user's direct twitter page. While in concept, this is great, but in reality not so much because you don't offer nearly as much information or functionality as their actual Twitter profile page. Until you do that please give the option to turn this off.

        The Green follow button somewhat misleads to make a person think this feature is already there.

        yes this would be great feature. 2 of 2 features i requested to move our users away from MetroTwit.

      • Thu WinThu Win commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would like to know whether the person I am checking out is following me or not

      • brianbrian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Absolutely! the android app also has the ability to create streams of saved twitter searches. I find myself at the computer using hootsuite on my phone

      • JAM1975JAM1975 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, when I'm viewing "People I follow" there seems to be no way of knowing if they also follow me. Unless I'm missing it?

      • VinceVince commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Trialing your product and very impressed except for when I found this feature is missing from the web dashboard. Very big headache as a result...

        This was such an essential part of CoTweet and from a company point of view we need this function to ensure effective following.

      • Mark FriskMark Frisk commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I simply don't understand why this functionality doesn't exist iin HootSuite web. It's critical, at least for me, to know which of our Twitter accounts another user is following and, conversely, which of our Twitter accounts are following that other user. Why can't this very basic functionality be implemented?

      • Craig CampCraig Camp commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It is a major flaw that the iPhone client is more robust with information than the web/desktop version. It's always pushing me away from hootsuite looking for a better solution. You have to be able to see right away if someone is following you or not. #fail

        This is a biggie for me as well. The only reason I go to Twitter on the web is for this information and to see who other people are following.
