Once you’ve connected your social media accounts, you can start organizing your account activity with tabs and streams.
Streams are created under tabs, sort of like files stored in different folders.
To create a tab, press the plus icon below the compose box and give your tab a name.
Now you’re ready to start adding streams into your tab.
There are a couple of different ways you can add streams but one of the easiest is the button in the top left of your dashboard.
In the pop-up window, select your social network and choose the appropriate profile you’d like to create a stream for.
Below the profile picker, you’ll have a range of options for the types of streams you can create for that account.
Press the green “plus” icon to add the desired streams to your tab.
Now you’re well on your way to organizing your social accounts into tabs and streams on your Hootsuite dashboard
