Facebook Groups, Events, Photos & Geo Make #HootSuite Even Friendlier

HootSuite is now even Facebookier

Enjoy updated Facebook functionality within HootSuite’s social media management system – now with support for Facebook Groups and Events, exclusive search streams, plus photo uploading direct to Facebook. We also refreshed the process for posting to Pages and Profiles, added a Profile Picker, and included more ways to monitor walls, news, events and comments in HootSuite streams.

Along with Facebook Insights analytics reports already available the social media management system, HootSuite users can now manage all campaign tasks – including scheduling and assignments – from within the dashboard. Also, Enterprise customers can geo-target campaigns by region or by language.

The new tools are ready to go next time you login to HootSuite. Thanks for sharing the news with your friends and fans ~ we look forward to hearing how the tools help your social media campaigns.
