How to Use HootSuite

I like using HootSuite in managing my Twitter account. HootSuite is a web-based social media management tool.  It is so user-friendly. With HootSuite, I get to view all my home, sent, mentions, search and list feeds quick and easy. They are all arranged neatly in columns of streams in my HootSuite dashboard.

Another feature I like in HootSuite is the schedule tweet option. With this option, I can send my tweets on a particular time and date I want it sent; even when I am away from my computer. You can also shrink your URLs in HootSuite, which is another useful feature to have in hand, especially when you want to tweet websites with long virtual addresses.

I use HootSuite’s basic plan for free. This allows me to add up at most 5 of my social profiles. I was able to add my Facebook  and WordPress profile in my HootSuite dashboard. However, I am hoping that HootSuite can include Google+, YouTube,Tumblr, and other popular social media sites for their basic plan users. The integration of these social sites are only available in their paid subscription plans. Wouldn’t it be great if we can get these for free too? I just can’t resist putting a little wishful thinking here.

It is so awesome that HootSuite is web-based. I really like tools that are web-based. I don’t need to install anything in my computer. It saves hard disk space and I can sign in in any computer with Internet connection.

Now it is your time to try. Just follow my tutorial on how to use HootSuite. Happy Social Networking!
