This is a technical post for the benefit of my fellow students in Kristen Lamb’s social media class (which, by the way, I’m highly recommending!), but obviously I hope that anyone who’s lost in Hoot Suite (an app that I absolutely love) will find this helpful.
Several folks have posted on twitter and on our class loop about being unable to find their class tweets, which have a #wana112 hashtag. It can be confusing. Rather than try to set out instructions, I thought a visual would be helpful. So here’s a video I did to, hopefully, help some of y’all navigate the waters of HootSuite. It seems choppy and full of scary riptides, but I promise once you get in past your toes, the water’s fine!
Thanks so much for this video. I’m passing out your link to other I know who are treading water.
Glad it helped!
JBKenner… First, thank you for the video.
Second, what software do you use to create the video? Is it something buried somewhere in Windows, or a program you purchased?
It’s a program called Screenium. I’m totally Mac, so I don’t know if there’s a Windows version, but you can get the Mac version through the App store. It’s not terribly expensive, and does a great job. And is super easy to use!
