Debbie,

Hootsuite is good for many people. but I usually take the time to do it myself.

Debbie, I have Hootsuite but have done a poor job of keeping it up. My former personal assistant was really good with it but since she left to raise a family it has been ignored. You just caused me to write out a post it note and put it on my desk, it says HootSuite update.

Yes, hootsuite used to allow 4.  That's an interesting idea to use 2 programs to get more done.  I may look into that for April when I do my next batch.

We visit the other platforms almost daily so just drop the link, shift up the cross pollination. Not turn on the hose and leave it blasting. More rotation, make one a lead, two days later let it introduce in a different pattern. It works for me, whatever does for you, do that.

Debbie, I have used both Hootsuite and Buffer, and though they both work well, I prefer Buffer. Their setup is really simple, and they make it easy to post to multiple accounts at once. Their pro plan is just $10/month, which lets you connect 10 social accounts, but I managed to get by on the free plan for a while until I decided to upgrade. If you're looking for different options, I would give them a try! I've been really happy with them.

BTW, I think it's called TweetDeck. There is also buffer. I've heard from many social media people, as well as tech savvy social media people that they prefer hootsuite, and I remember doing research on it, before I chose. 

That being said, you probably can't go wrong w/ any of them.

Debbie - You can read how I use hootsuite in this link.

RVA HomePRO Michael Hottman no, they don't have my names, it says it's from hootsuite, which is not ideal. This was one of those things on my "to do" that I haven't gotten to yet.

I must admit, I don't use anyone of them. I've looked at them but it took me so long to figure out what to do, I wasn't saving time!

I don't use any tool but I do schedule posts on my business page. Debbie Gartner when you schedule things in hootsuite do the posts have your name on them or Hootsuite?

I use hootsuite and I find it pretty easy.  I use the free version  I schedule 4 months worth of posts at once.

I checked and Hootsuite free that I have only allows 3 networks. Their pro allows 50. Buffer sounds interesting and I will check it out and may use two.

My son says he doesn't like Hootsuite and uses another. I consider him a real techy and wanted to see what the rest are using. There has got to be a tool that is easy, cheap and looks geniune. I am going to do more exploring today. I will share my discoveries. 

Thanks Debbie Gartner for the post link you shared.
