New Facebook Tools – Manage Facebook Fan Pages with Hootsuite

By Chris Trottier | 5 years ago | 81 Comments

“Integrating Facebook profiles with HootSuite has been amazing,” many of you have said, “But what about Facebook Pages?” Consider it done. Starting this week, you can integrate Facebook Pages with HootSuite.

Tools for Facebook

To add your Pages to HootSuite, go to Settings, select Social Networks, then click Add Social Network. You will notice an option indented underneath Facebook that says Pages. Click on this option, and you’ll go through the same steps you previously used to authenticate private Facebook profiles.

When you’re done, updating your Facebook Pages using HootSuite will be a breeze. Just select the appropriate Page and away you go! Schedule updates in advance, or post simutaneously to the profiles and social networks of your choice — Ping.fm, Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter.

Give it a try. We’re sure you’ll love it.

Hi!

When i bulk schedule my post on Facebook they get posted but the images (owly links) don't get posted. You can only see the links but not the picture. Is there any way to solve that?

Hi, the option for pages is not appearing when I try to add my business page as a social network on the free version.  I can see my personal profile and my groups, but not the page that I just created. Do I have to change something on the Facebook side?

This is outdated ... I cannot find the "facebook pages" option as mentioned above and in your Hootsuite University video. My purpose in signing up with hootsuite is to use it to schedule posts for my business page and not for personal posts. Help!

How come I can't see this "pages" option? Is it only available when you upgrade? Does it depend on which version of Hoot Suite you have???

I really like Hootsuite, but I keep having problems scheduling posts to my Facebook page. Publishing them right away is no problem, but when I schedule them, they will disappear from my Scheduled Posts at the time of publishing – without appearing on my Facebook page. Am I doing anything wrong? (It works fine with Twitter though.)

Thanks for this great tool, we are just testing it on our Facebook Fan page and found it very easy to manage and to handle. Great tool - I will recommend it to some of my other friends in Austria, I'm sure it will be useful for them.

How do i create a fb stream that just streams the notifications (that little globe to the left of the fb search box that lights up with a number when you have notifications)?

What's the length of the status I can schedule for a fan page, and can I add a photo

Can we use Hootsuite to send out event invites. It is time consuming to do it know on Facebook. You have to add them individually.

For anyone still having trouble with connecting your Facebook account:

Another issue may not have to do with Security Settings, Facebook settings or even Hootsuite Settings.

We learned our issue was with the resolution of our monitor which did not allow us to see the whole page. In the Hootsuite setup for Facebook there is an "ALLOW" button at the bottom of the page. We could not see the button and the page could not be dragged to see it.

SOLUTION: On your Internet browser (in the lower right corner of the page) click on the (down) arrow to the right of the 100% magnifyer. Reduce the number to 50% or 75% (whichever permits you to see the whole page. The whole page will be displayed and you be able to see a white background on the dead part of the screen.

From here you can see and click on "ALLOW". From here it should all work fine.

I was wondering if you can post from HootSuite to a Facebook Group? I figured out how to add the Fan page and personal FB pages. But I have a large group that I want to manage as well. Anyone know?

Is there a way to view comments made by others on the Facebook Page via HootSuite. That would make this a great tool.

It's so hard to manage Facebook pages on the go -- I appreciate hootsuite taking this on.

The page access is great. Is there likely to be the ability to work on facebook "groups" as well?

@PepeCabezas Hi Pepe, are you able to Edit the message when going to Publisher>Scheduled Messages and then waiting for a Preview to generate?  This should then post with a preview to Facebook!  I hope this helps!

@PepeCabezas Hi there!  Currently we don't support image preview for Bulk Uploading however there is a workaround that may be helpful for you!  I suggest to Bulk Upload your CSV, then go to Publisher>Scheduled Messages.  Selecting "Edit" and waiting for a preview to generate will Save your post with a preview!  I hope this helps.

@SRCB Hi there,

Thank you for reaching out with your question.


My apologies, it is currently not possible to post to a Facebook Page from another Facebook Page. You must post messages to Facebook Pages from your Personal Profile.


I hope this information helps!

Hi Sudip,

While HootSuite does not have that feature, you can suggest it on our Feedback Channel. Users can suggest and vote up feature requests there.

Currently you can attach a photo via a link but not upload to FB but this won't work with scheduling. Otherwise, you can add 420 characters to FB posts.
