What’s the reason for not being able to get API links in LinkedIn. I want to be able to post fan pages from Hootsuite. I need a dedicated API for our group.
Also, is it possible in Hootsuite to track who has retweeted your posts in twitter?
API Links in Linkedln & Hootsuite
Click on "Settings" near the bottom of your screen, click on the "Social Networks" tab. Once you click that tab, click the button with a green “+” button that says "Add Social Network". Once you click Add Social Network, a window pops up. The default social network HootSuite selects is Twitter, but on the right side of the window, you will see a menu that also lists FaceBook, LinkedIn, and PingFM.
When you select LI you will first have to give authorization for the site to connect with HootSuite. Once you sync your social profiles with HootSuite, each editor’s profiles will be grouped by social network. You will also notice a number in brackets right beside where it says FaceBook Profiles, LinkedIn Profiles, etc. This number signifies how many profiles are associated with each social network.
Beside the message box, underneath where it says Select Social Network(s), you will notice a change to your avatars: the lower left hand corner has an icon of the social network it is associated with. This is so there will be no confusion on whether you’re updating your status from Twitter, FaceBook, LinkedIn, PingFM or all of them at once.
