We created a Hootsuite Integration on our platform so that you can bee (🐝) able to also publish on Pinterest, which we can't support at the moment without this. However, this integration can also be useful if you don’t have complete access to a social profile, regardless if it’s Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn, but you do have access to a Hootsuite profile that has the profiles connected to it.
*Instagram Business profiles are not supported through the Hootsuite API.
To connect a profile through Hootsuite, you first need to have that social profile connected to Hootsuite. Then, you will have to scroll through your SocialBee dashboard to find the profile you want to post via Hootsuite through (or connect a new one).
Even though you can connect any supported social profile through Hootsuite, we recommend connecting your Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook profiles directly to SocialBee. By eliminating third parties, there are fewer risks of having failed posts.
If for any reason you want to make any of your profiles post though Hootsuite, follow these next steps:
Go to your SocialBee Dashboard, find the profile you are interested in, and press on Posting Setup for the profile for which you want to change the posting provider. Then make sure you have your Hootsuite account connected in Posting Setup.
The Posting Setup will allow you to view all of our posting integrations. Authorize SocialBee's access to your Hootsuite account, then make sure to select the correct Hootsuite account.
And if you want to double-check? You can go back to your dashboard to look at your profile and you should be able to see the Hootsuite logo next to that profile.
That's it! Now all content and posting settings will still be in SocialBee, but the posting itself will be done through your Hootsuite account.
