In the HootSuite dashboard it’s easy to add or remove any of your social network profiles. Not only is this a great way to consolidate all of your social media profiles, you will find that it’s much easier to keep track of your online activities.
How to add a social network profile.

How to remove a social network profile.
- First, click the side Launch Bar. From here, click on Settings, and then select Social Networks. Next, select the social network profile you would like to delete. Then click the Profile Settings button.

After you click this button, a dialogue window will pop up that says, “Are you sure you want to remove the USERNAME profile from HootSuite? Any pending messages for this profile will be lost”.
