That valuable cross-posting functionality of HootSuite has become even more useful through the enhanced Hootlet Chrome extension. Now you can post updates to several social networks without ever leaving the webpage you’re on.
The Hootlet can be used to immediately share whatever website you are on with your followers on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other networks. All you have to do is click the Hootlet icon in your browser, and a pre-populated message with the title of the page and an ow.ly link to it appears. Then it is up to you to choose the social networks you’d like to share it to, publish, schedule or AutoSchedule it (more on that in another blog post) and then click send. Simple, easy, and efficient.
Did a specific sentence or quote catch your eye? Instead of Tweeting or posting about an entire website, with Hootlet you can focus on the information that matters most (without all of the copy and paste).
While on a page, highlight the text that you want to share and click the Hootlet icon. The same compose message box will appear, this time with the highlighted text already included and an ow.ly link to that page. All you have to do is click ‘send now.’
Media Sharing – Easily Share Instagram Photos, YouTube Videos and More
Downloading and uploading images to social media has never been simple, until now. Sharing visual media on social networks has been made seamless through Hootlet.
Learn how you can use Hootlet to easily share photos, videos and more in HootSuite University’s 3-minute walkthrough video.
A HootSuite button will now be present anytime you view an image on Google images, Flickr, Pinterest and Instagram, the pillars of online visual media. A click of that button brings up a compose message pop-up, with the title of the image and an ow.ly link to it already in place. To share with your followers, just hit send – and you’ll have done it without ever leaving the page. That quick process has also been integrated into YouTube, making the sharing of videos easier than ever before.
