Do you still use HootSuite or other third-party applications to manage Facebook? It used to be a strategic and efficient way to go, but if you’re still using these tools to schedule posts— you’ll want to re-evaluate your process.

The best reason why you shouldn’t be using HootSuite anymore? You can now schedule posts directly in Facebook!
