#HootTip: How to Add Google+ Pages to HootSuite
When you use various social networks, individually signing in to multiple sites is time consuming. HootSuite streamlines this effort, by creating one dashboard that houses all of your social networks. The HootSuite dashboard is designed to make adding social networks simple. To help get you acquainted with the dashboard’s functionality, we have a new #HootTip all about this HootSuite feature.
Adding Google+ Pages in HootSuite
The HootSuite dashboard makes it easy and convenient to build your online presence. With the addition of Google+, it’s even easier to manage and consolidate all of your social media activities.
Fun fact: Since extending Google+ Pages to all HootSuite users, we’ve had over 5000 Google+ Pages added!
Step 1: Go to your Launch Bar and click on User Profile.
Step 2: Select Add a Social Network under My Social Networks.
Step 3: You will then be prompted by an “Add Social Network” pop up box. From here choose the Social Network you will like to add to HootSuite (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc). Press Connect.
Step 4: You will then be prompted to sign into your Google account. Once you have typed in your email and password click Sign in. A pop up will appear requesting access to your Google + pages. Click Allow Access.
Step 5: Once you have granted HootSuite permission to access your Google + pages, click on the Google+ page you would like to add and then click Finished Importing.
