Comments from some of those who selected Hootsuite as one of their Top 10 Tools

“It´s my first step before using Twitter. It allows me to aggregate and arrange all my favorite hashtags and keywords in a Dashboard for then starting a focused exploration.”  Miguel Canas, Spain

“HootSuite is a social media management tool. Using a dashboard interface, it lays out all of your social media input and output in columns, so you can see the incoming feed, messages you’ve received and Tweets you’ve sent (if using it for Twitter) neatly displayed in one view. This makes it easy to hold conversations and to dip into the Twitter stream, which provides endless opportunities for learning. HootSuite was on my top ten list two years ago and it remains today.” Connie Malamed
