This week the social media communications dashboard, HootSuite, announced its social partnership with Google+. The partnership now allows HootSuite users to manage their Google+ circles, post public updates to select circles, search public posts, and push out messaging to select circles. Also, HootSuite will allow users to track who +1s an item, who shares and comments on posts, and users can also manage their circles as well. Currently the update is available only to HootSuite Enterprise clients at this time.
HOW WILL HOOTSUITE’S INTEGRATION WITH GOOGLE+ HELP MY BUSINESS?
One of the main reasons why small businesses neglect their social communities is the time involved to manage them. HootSuite has been around for years and has been an effective tool for businesses to manage their Facebook and Twitter accounts. It has allowed business users to manage their content at one location without having to login and logout and double post content. The addition of Google+ into HootSuite’s interface will only streamline social media content management even more.
Does your company use HootSuite to manage its social communications? Will your business use Google+ now that you can manage all your social communities with HootSuite? Tweet us @jasegroup and let us know what you think.
