    Little buggy, otherwise fantastic.

    Composition interface seems a little buggy. As in, sometimes it relocates my cursor a little off from where I place it, so positioning it correctly can be a burden. That aside, it's a great, streamlined solution to a complex gig. I manage all the social media for my band (as well as some other pages), and this app allows me to engage with audiences WAY easier than trying to schedule Facebook posts in one app, using desktop Twitter ads to schedule posts, and just flat out try to remember to post to Insta. This makes things way easier. 5/5 of the bugs get fixed.

    Returning customer

    Initially had Hootsuite but due to my own social media inabilities, it had not been an effective tool from my perspective. Returning to the product with clear cut objectives for my own growth goals has now made Hootsuite a much needed tool. With a better understanding of the audience I am trying to capture, Hootsuite makes perfect sense for any social media growth objective. Hoping I will have to buy the upgraded version sooner rather than later, of course, due to their help😉. A “Can’t miss” product in my professional opinion.

    Took a bit to figure out.

    If you’re serious about growing your brand and you’re broke, I’d suggest using it. Took a bit for me to figure out but after I did, it’s cool. Would love for them to re-evaluate the calendar feature that shows the post schedule. It’s impossible to navigate. Sometimes it shows your posts in small boxes, other times it only shows your most recent one in its entirety, with no way to switch between the two. No rhyme or reason. But for a free app it’s straightforward enough.

    Life Saver!

    Love this app! I used to just save all my photos for Instagram in drafts, but my posting time was all over the board and I'd half the time forget to share to Facebook. At first, I didn't love that Hootsuite made you go into the Instagram app to post, but you can size it, filter, and tag so it works out perfect. This has been a huge time saver and I'm able to free up space in my photos since I can upload so many to the app. I use it for work and I'd recommend it to everyone!

    Makes my social marketing So much easier!

    I am a social media noob. I normal social media consumer who happens to own a business which needs a social media presence. That means I have had to learn how to produce social media ads. I was going crazy trying to not only come up with the ads, but also getting them published to multiple social media sites. Hootsuite has made this job so much less time consuming & also gives me analytics to judge how my messages go over. Love it!!!
