Hootsuite Releases Easy Share: A Social Sharing Tool

By Donné Torr | 1 year ago | No Comments

Today, Hootsuite introduces Easy Share as our latest addition for social media professionals. Easy Share is a social sharing tool designed to help users execute impactful marketing campaigns and reach larger audiences.

Easy Share was born out of frequent “Please share this post…” emails from our Marketing and PR teams. Hootsuite engineers built a one-click option to streamline the process of sharing content among peers, and we tested the new tool with a few customers. We found it solved a major pain point, and now Easy Share is available to all Hootsuite customers directly within their web and mobile dashboards.

Built for marketers and social media managers, Easy Share helps you:

  • Leverage the social media presence of your peers to amplify content and reach wider audiences
  • Discover and share new content that promotes your brand
  • Take advantage of every amplification opportunity whether you’re on the go or in front of your computer

How to use Easy Share in Hootsuite:

Send-tweet-to-ES (1)

  1. Hover over any social message within a Hootsuite stream
  2. Click the message dropdown arrow and select Send to Email
  3. Your default email client will populate an Easy Share URL that opens a pre-populated share window when clicked

How to use Easy Share on Mobile (iOS devices):



  1. Tap on a social message to access Message Detail view
  2. On bottom right corner select more options
  3. Tap Email Tweet
  4. iOS email client will populate an Easy Share URL that opens a pre-populated share window for easy sharing

And here’s how an Easy Share link works:


PRO TIP: If you use Chrome you can set your default email client to Gmail to activate upon clicking the “Send to Email” option

Try Easy Share in your dashboard

Hi I am planning to take the HootSuite University course, but just saw that a requirement to keep my listing is to be continuously enrolled? Does this mean I need to make a permanent on-going payment of $21 a month to Hootsuite in order to keep my certification and listing? That seems really steep!
