Online conversations move quickly and don’t stop when you step away from your desk.

Hootsuite Mobile for iOS and Android lets you manage your social media content and conversations on the go with just a few taps and swipes of your mobile device.

Hootsuite Mobile gives you access to your Streams, Publisher, the Compose box, Search and Settings.

With the engagement streams at your fingertips, you can easily see who has commented on your posts and respond quickly, just as you would on your desktop. You can also move the engagement streams and tabs to optimize for your mobile needs, and even create new ones if needed.

For example, if you’re attending an event or a conference, use Search to find the event hashtag and then add it as a stream to connect with other attendees.

Any new streams you add in mobile will automatically sync with your desktop Hootsuite dashboard.

To publish a message, tap the compose button and select the social networks to which you’d like to post.

Write your message, then add a photo, GIF, or video.  

If you include a link with your message, you can shrink it to an owly link to save space and track clickthroughs.  

If you need to mention a user, simply start typing their username and profile search will bring up the most relevant handles for easy tagging.

Choose Send Now, Auto-Schedule, or Schedule a custom time and then click to send.

In the Publisher, you can see all the posts you’ve scheduled and adjust publishing times to fine tune howyou’re targeting your audience.

You can also edit message details, for example, if a specific message contains copy that you need to re-work.  

If you’re frequently on the go, make the most of your time with easy access to Hootsuite’s free online education.
