    I currently write my own blog posts and combine with a paid version of Hootsuite but wondered if this Wordpress plugin is worth the $10 a month they are asking.
    Does a similar thing but I like the fact that everything is in one dashboard but I am a sucker for shiny new things!

    Im interested to know if any guys on here have used it and what they think of it.

    And no,I'm not connected to the plugin in any way,shape or form!

    I have also thought about using it. But i am not sure. I mean I have only several social networks accounts which I can manage manually. Everything depends on the number and how closely connected you to your customers. I have made some research that was helpful for me. I decided not to choose it. 10$ is too much for a few accounts.

    Here are the Pros

    Time saving - This platform was originally founded with an idea to manage social media sites from one place.
    Scheduling post - Another extremely useful feature of this platform is scheduling posts.
    Insights - Not only are you able to manage the social media account, but you are also able to easily track and analyze the data through the HootSuite dashboard.
    HootSuite App - HootSuite offers a free application for iPhone, iPad and Android.

    Cons
    Automated messages - Even though automated messages and scheduling posts is a real time saver, it is possible to lose that personal relationship you should have with your followers.
    Limitations of the basic plan - You do not have to pay to use HootSuite's basic features, and they are good enough to help you manage your accounts, but there are some limitations.
    Use of ow.ly -If you want to use the short URLs when posting via your HootSuite dashboard, you will have to use one of these four: ow.ly, ht.ly, owl.li and htl.li. They all provide click-through statistics and traffic report, but vary in some features.
    Here are two very informative and insightful articles:

    Enjoy reading it and good luck with business!
