Adding your social networks to your Hootsuite account is an essential first step to building out your dashboard.

First, select your profile image from the top of the launch menu and then click on “add a Social Network”.

Next, in the pop-up window select the type of social network account you want to connect with Hootsuite and press the connect button.

You will then be prompted to enter your account credentials.  

By selecting “Authorize app” you’re giving Hootsuite permission to manage that account.  

For Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn, select the profiles, Pages or groups you’d like to import.

Now click finish importing and you’ve successfully added your social account into Hootsuite.
