Every morning I stumble out of bed at 5:30 AM and brew myself a cup of pure magic. Once I take my first few sips and begin the path to cognizance, I sit down at my desk and check social media accounts and stats. I am a power user, handling multiple accounts, client accounts and team members, so I need powerful tools that let me do this efficiently. I work at ridiculous speeds and have zero patience for things that are not highly automated, so I tend to try out many solutions before I settle on the one I like. I learn the ins and outs because I’m geeky like that and it also helps when our team develops a strategy with the tools we’ve chosen if everyone is up to speed on our options.
One of my favorite tools for social media scheduling and listening is Hootsuite. This is not an affiliate post, nor am I getting anything out of this, so it is my sincere review of the tool based on our experience over several years of using it. We also use several other tools, since there are things that Hoostsuite doesn’t do for us.

There are several things that we would like to see in Hootsuite that currently aren’t there, like Pinterest integration. Here are a few of the things we need and can’t use Hootsuite for.
