Hooray! As you know, I’m a big user of HootSuite. I use it live during the day to monitor activity and respond to posts as well as to schedule posts in the future. Well, a few days ago they released LinkedIn Company pages, which was formerly only available to Enterprise users, to the masses. Yes, in the past you could only manage your personal LinkedIn profile and LinkedIn Groups. But now all HootSuite users can manage their LinkedIn Company Pages alongside all of their other social channels. Sweet!
So here’s what you do.
Move your cursor to the dark gray area on the left to open up the control panel and select your name. From there you can add new social networks. Click Add a social network, then select LinkedIn and your options for LinkedIn will come up (your personal profile, any groups you belong to, and any company pages you are an Admin of).
I know many of us have been waiting for Google+ to be added to HootSuite and my contacts at HootSuite tell me that Google is holding that up right now. However, there is hope. Happy hooting!
