must-have for bloggers

Pros:
The software is an amazing means of saving up on a load of time wasted on maintaining a presence on every single social media platform every single day. It allows me to schedule all the content for all my social media pages for my blog and I wouldn't worry about it.

Cons:
The dashboard could be better organized as it can seem cluttery and keeping track of things can be confusing sometimes.

All-in-one social media management

Pros:
I couldn’t be happier that I chose to use Hootsuite when I did. Ever since I started on it, managing all my social media accounts has become a breeze. I still explore the market to see if there is any better product out there but Hootsuite is the best there is.

Cons:
They charge extra credits to generate reports.

Major asset in managing online presence

Pros:
Hootsuite offers easy and quick support for a list of social media accounts. Coordinating and scheduling posts across various platforms is done efficiently.

Cons:
The follow up on posted/failed posts is not intuitive in terms of checking if certain media is posted on different platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with their separate file types and user tags.

Highly beneficial tool

Pros:
The software adds so much convenience to the life of a busy person. There is no need to check and post on different social platforms every single day and then manually monitoring their progress when Hootsuite takes of it all with a number of added perks. Once you schedule your posts, you’re good to go for a long time.

Cons:
The learning curve can be rather tricky but once you get used to things, Hootsuite is very intuitive.

Great for bulk post scheduling

Pros:
Maintaining a presence on social media is really easy with Hootsuite. The software allows you to schedule posts in bulk at one time and coordinate posting times across different social media platforms.

Cons:
Integration is usually great but the Instagram link expires every once in a while, which prevents regular posts from being uploaded. It takes a long time to fix it, the Instagram issue still persists.

Great social accounts manager

Pros:
Twitter posts scheduling is so simple with Hootsuite. All of the scheduled tweets are then displayed onto a calendar which gives you an overview of your activities. I love this convenience.

Cons:
The dashboard can seem a bit overwhelming at times. Other than that, everything else is very user-friendly.

Brilliant social media manager

Pros:
Hootsuite revolutionizes social media networking with its scheduled and coordinated posting capabilities across several social networking sites at a time.

Cons:
The solution is not the simplest so it takes a while to get familiarized with all the bells and whistles. Works extremely smoothly once you get the hang of things.

Not worth the expense

Pros:
The software has some perks to offer including the team features and scheduled updates.

Cons:
There are no dates specified for the Facebook insights, shortened URLs are absurdly overpriced. And highly expensive to generate analytics reports. Overall, the product is not worth the expense for our clients.

Paid versions are helpful

Pros:
The software is quite useful but the working is a bit complicated does not connect to all aspects of the collaborating applications so that you miss some of the functionality. I do, however, really appreciate the ability to schedule all my social media posts from one mainframe.

Cons:
You cannot use more than 3 accounts with more than 1 user in the free edition.
