Hootsuite Review: The Smart Way to Manage Your Social Media Accounts

"hootsuite"I have been using Hootsuite for a year now (yes I know I was a late starter) and thought I would finally share my experience with using the software!

First of all this time last year I was managing about 50 social media channels – mainly made up of Twitter and Facebook and it was getting silly having to constantly go from one page to another whenever I was doing some work for a client or for myself.

So I looked at the different options and Hootsuite came out as the front runner. I kept my Socialoomph account for a little bit longer and I must admit I was soon very impressed with Hootsuite and this is why….

Why Hootsuite?
