It is without a doubt the tool of choice for millions of social media managers and marketing managers.

Pros

It allows you to plan all your publications and that translates into productivity saving a lot of time and effort.

Cons

It takes a function to see the trending topics and study the possibility of publishing a retweet using any of them that could be related to your topic and give more visibility to your tweet.

Pros

Makes social posting SO much easier on sites like Facebook and Twitter. I used this software for the last company I worked for and it was great. There doesn't seem to be another software out there that can compete with this.

Cons

Really wish it synced with Instagram, although there are still ways you can schedule instagram posts, but they then send to your mobile phone and you have to manually upload it to IG. Wish there was a more comprehensive calendar to use (larger calendar where you can see posts) - it would help with overall visualization of social profile management.

Pros

It is useful to have all social media streams on a single platform and manage the posts without entering on each social media. Posts can be scheduled on a certain date/time. The dashboard can be created with the streams I need to monitor and it is easy to do the daily check on posts and engagement.

Cons

Sometimes I do not find some admin options, the interface is not very clear and complicated, it can be improved to be more user-friendly.

Hootsuite is absolutely critical if you hope to effectively leverage social media for your company / personal brand.

Pros

Hootsuite allows you to plan ahead and reap the well deserved time off of social media. If you have a goal to make revenue through social media this is a must. Additionally, if you want to find customers through social media, Hootsuite allows you to schedule all your posts so you can focus on interacted with future clients.

Cons

Until you are making money or finding clients through social media, the concept of paying for post automation will seem funny. There is a free version that is limited to only a few social media accounts (3 if I remember right), but I guess this con is just your fear that you won't receive a return on your investment.

I think it is a little expensive for what you really get. The second user should be added without a cost. Also, sometimes profiles are unlinked and messages fail to be sent, however, this is only occasionally and easy to fix.

Great software for starters in the Social Media Management Field.

Pros

Love the layout of the Hootsuite platform on the Desktop, (Windows 10 and Google Chrome), it was easy to see which Social Media Platform I would be using to layout images, and posts in advance. Never had any issues with posting content, and was easy to review to make changes prior to a post being released. Really enjoy the Hootlet extension on Chrome, makes posting very easy!

Cons

Takes a little bit of time setting up the dashboard so you can see which acconts are being used. I wish there was a separate column for future posts, right beside the actual social media stream.

I would recomend the free version, but don’t bother paying for the upgrade.

Pros

Hootsuite offers a convenient way to find syndicate content as well as schedule and publish social media posts.

Cons

The tool is clunky (at best). It’s very difficult to schedule posts, even with the bulk scheduling ‘tool’. Analytics are also useless unless you pay a significant amount of money on ‘upgrades’.

I love Hootsuite for managing various Twitter accounts. I manage 6 different accounts and Hootsuite is the perfect way to tab through all of my accounts, and to track hashtags, users, etc. It's an easy system to be able to see your followers' posts and for you to see a snapshot of your account. The emailed reports are extremely useful to track your reach as well!

Cons

The Facebook "tabs" are a little less functional and easy to use than the Twitter tabs. I would suggest just using for your Twitter accounts.

Pros

Being able to measure my or my business's social media stats is super important, naturally. That data is presented to us in a way that helps us to very easily understand not just how many people are engaging with our social media posts and when, but HOW that's happening, period. Which type of posts generate the most site traffic? What time of day or night might our posts be the most or least popular or engaging? How long does it take me or my team to respond to posts? These are important things to know, as they have the potential the build up or break down our brands.

Scheduling content is, of course, a huge plus when you've got 10, 12, 15 different posts across multiple platforms to help keep your audience involved and engaged in what you're doing. It's also super helpful for people and businesses that are very busy outside of their online content, and may not have a dedicated social media team to lighten the load.

Cons

The Android app can be very slow to load at times. It could be just me, but I'm usually on wifi and have a flagship Samsung that hit the market a year ago. It also gives me trouble sometimes when I'm posting to Instagram via Hootsuite and I check my posts via the actual Instagram app, and the Hootsuite Instagram post won't be there. Weird stuff. I should add that in these instances, I am using the 'Post Now' option, and not scheduling posts for a future time. Could be user error, but if it is, I think this may suggest that when it comes to posting to Instagram through Hootsuite, the process isn't as easy or straight-forward as it could or should be.

Not much! I have been using Hootsuite for almost 10 years and I really haven't come across anything I didn't like that wasn't the social media platform's fault. For example, having to connect a LinkedIn or Facebook page through a personal account. That makes it difficult when there is turnover and you lose that person's access.

So I used this software for around 12 months. I started with the FREE plan and soon discovered it was very limited (3 social profiles and 30 scheduled messages at any one time). This did not cut it for me. Switched to the Professional plan and was slightly more impressed. I got unlimited scheduled messages and 10 social profiles. This allowed me to run a couple of Facebook pages, some Twitter accounts, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Cons

I was disappointed that I couldn't get more Social Profiles and Users for my money. I wanted to go down the path of scheduling up some Facebook Posts for my clients and found to make this happen I was going to need to spend a LOT of money. I have since found some similar software for a much better price and have let Hootsuite go.

HootSuite is extremely reliable when it comes to posting social media updates at the time the user schedules. It has certainly taken a lot of stress off me, and opened up for time, by pre-scheduling postings. Moreover, I love how Hootsuite offers both app and web-based posting options-- which has made navigating media content to upload much easier.

Cons

I find the Instagram interface posting to be rather limited-- Hootsuite cannot post directly to Instagram, instead, they remind you to post. Given that multimedia posts are the most time consuming, I really wish they would improve this feature. It is not ideal for long-term use.

We stopped using this software once we realized it didn't work well for the functions we needed. I think this could be beneficial for those in editorial-focused roles.

Pros

I like the way the feeds line up and you can see updates in real time (ie: hashtags, page tracking etc). I could see this platform working very well for a media outlet or a company based around editorial.

Cons

There is no visual planner for Instagram, which is crucial for those in a creative business. The plans are very expensive and the platform is not very intuitive. The analytics also feel to be lacking a bit for the price.

Time saver, money saver, top notch communications tool for the social media age

Pros

Here are all the features you wish twitter had for free. I only use this to manage our nonprofit's twitter account but the ability to schedule tweets is a game changer. Like all small nonprofits, I wear lots of hats and I'm not just a communications staffer. I can sit on a monday morning and churn out a week of content and go do the other parts of my job. When we recently started toying with adding an instagram account, it feels less daunting becuse I can manage it through Hootsuite. Twitter is an incredible tool but being able to spend less time there is good for one's mental health and Hootsuite helps with that.

Cons

I have gotten used to the stream dashboard but it seemed clunky at first. They have a new tweet design lab which is top notch.
