Hootsuite Changes Affecting IG and FB

Hootsuite recently announced some changes to how their social media post scheduling platform works with Instagram.

The biggest change is how often you can post.

Starting Nov 3, 2020, you can post 60 items to Instagram via Hootsuite within any rolling 60 day period – or an average of 2 per day, if you post daily.

This means that you may need to do some additional planning as to when you want to schedule posts or post a few more IG snaps directly via the IG app.

Another change to note is additional security when accessing your accounts via Hootsuite:

“Instagram accounts linked to Facebook Pages with large audiences may be asked to confirm their identity and secure their account before they can resume publishing via Hootsuite. This process involves 1) enabling two-factor authentication to protect the account from unauthorized access and 2) confirming your primary location by turning on your mobile device’s location services.”

Location tagging is also gone for IG and Facebook.
