Having some issues with this extension.
I was excitied to see i was now able to schedule a  'share' for posts/virals  on facebook,
However when i try and share one of my own photos with the hootlet app, it creates a shortened URL that is a bad link. It always redirects me to a page that says "

Oops! Google Chrome could not find...". Is this app just not compatible with scheduling a share on a viral image?

I also find a similar issue when 'sharing' a post of a youtube video, the shortened URL will only lead to the youtube homepage (if anything)

Why did this just automatically post an ad for Hootlet to my fb and twitter?  Unacceptable.

Can't wait to get my Hootlet on! We use Hootsuite to schedule out social media posts, but this new tool makes it easy to post to our sm sites on the fly.

Anything in the works for a Android mobile app?

The Hootlet has now become my "go-to" tool for social sharing. Here's my favorite feature: When I'm done scheduling or tweeting I get the link that takes me back to my dashboard. Sounds like a really simple option, but it's a huge time saver for me and a one of a kind feature that makes HootSuite stand out above the competition.

I also love that I can Tweet Instagrams without jumping through hoops! YouTube post scheduling is a breeze and I could go on and on but I'll stop there (for now).

♥ you guys! Thanks.

This is great. Awesome to see the tweets next to a google search but I'm unable to pull up tweets on google maps. Is there something I'm missing?
