HootSuite Goes Secure

Popular online brand management service, HootSuite enhanced its software very recently, after introducing a ‘security profile’ to it.

Secured, but, how much?

Secured, but, how much?


Used by organizations to maintain a strong communication network among its workers, HootSuite has often faced serious roadblocks after incidents of posting accidental comments going live, or common social media mistakes. The new feature will act as a line of defense during times like these. This means, that once someone types a comment, and clicks ‘Post’, a confirmation dialog box will open up prompting the user to confirm the post.

By the way of this feature, specific tags can be allotted to specific profiles. Several instances of public embarrassments caused as a result of mis-communication have led to the realization that more effective and fool-proof methods of monitoring content are required. This feature by HootSuite is referred to as the ‘glorified version’ of the ‘Are you sure?’ label.

HootSuite claims to go down more effectively in the secure profiles domain, since more and more business organizations will use these services, thereby, increasing the margin for error by a huge number.
