What did you learn from Hootsuite?
One of the first things I learned about Hootsuite was that it is way more intricate than I thought it was going to be. I had previously heard about Hootsuite when searching for internships a year ago because a lot of the posts said, “Must have some experience with Hootsuite.” I didn’t know what that meant at the time, but by taking this social media class with Dr. Freberg it has really opened my eyes to an amazing program. Hootsuite allows you to monitor multiple social media platforms at once, which is great for businesses that only have one person controlling all their social. It literally allows you to be in multiple places at once.
One of my favorite features on Hootsuite is the geo-streams. They allow you to look at posts that are happening in a certain geographical area. The idea is amazing because it allows you to target your closet audience and from there you can capture their attention.
Would you recommend this program to other classes and students?
First, Hootsuite is amazing. Second, Hootsuite is amazing. Now that we’ve discussed that, I think anyone who has the opportunity to take a Hootsuite certification course or even the free classes they have should go for it. Hootsuite is a great social media management tool that allows you to see all of your social media accounts and post to them straight from Hootsuite.
How are you going to use what you learned in the program for your social media practices after this class?
I feel like being Hootsuite certified has opened a lot of internship doors for me. I can now look at those internships I saw before and feel more confident in applying. I can’t wait to see what opportunities lie ahead of me.
Thank you so much Dr. Freberg for being one the best instructors I've ever had at UofL. Without you this Hootsuite Certification wouldn't have been possible.
