The platform allows businesses to monitor what their competitors are doing, as well as what their own fans are engaging with. Activity on different social media channels can be responded to instantly while showing what is trending in your business’ industry.
Below are some reasons you might want to consider using Hootsuite to manage your social network channels.  


Monitor Multiple Streams

Hootsuite allows you to manage many different social networks in one place, you can manage the following networks:

- Twitter

- Linkedln profiles , pages and groups
- Google+ pages
- Foursquare
- Myspace
- WordPress blogs
- Vimeo

It allows you to post to multiple channels at the same time, but make sure you are mindful of the different audience on each platform, and tailor your content accordingly.


Team Management

Businesses that re outsourcing their social media management and are using Hootsuite can also have more than one person managing the account. Unlike Facebook and Instagram, where each user must know the password for the account, Hootsuite allows you to log into the system with individual passwords and still manage all social network sites.

Hootsuite as a team management tool allows you to allocate responsibilities to different team members while still being able to monitor all activities being carried out. This means that there is no confusion as to what tasks have or have not being completed, while ensuring that there is no double handling of tasks as a whole team can monitor them all.
