So after loading my HootSuite interface for my Twitter feeds today I was confronted with an option to go Pro or keep with what I’m using at the moment, but at what price?
For starters, those of us that have used the marvellous HootSuite for free will have a reduced amount of social networks, RSS feeds and no Social insights.
Now while most of you may be saying but I only have one Twitter account and nothing else then maybe that is ok, but today people have not just a Twitter account but also FaceBook, FourSquare, MySpace, Linkedin and even Facbook pages, now that’s more that the allotted 5 Social Networks!
And you are only allowed 2 RSS feeds, looks like I’ll be going back to TwitterFeed for that then!
So what is it going to cost you to have what you now have with your HootSuite, well it’s going to cost you $5.99 (£3.77) a month, ok, it doesn’t sound much, but is you total up other costs that you may be spending over other things you may have such as your web hosting, then it soon total ups.
I’m not saying I’m a miser, ok I am really, but for me, I’ll be removing HootSuite from my computer and even from my BlackBerry and I’ll be using other Twitter apps over this one 😉
