How to Add Photos to Facebook Using HootSuite

If you use HootSuite, you may have found out that since Facebook has made some sweeping changes you can no longer add photos to your Facebook updates by clicking the attach file icon to a scheduled status update. For some this has really impacted their use of HootSuite.

Unfortunately HootSuite has not come out and directly addressed this in their forum, but has posted a work around that is not linked to the forum questions but one of our clients found and shared with us. Thanks to Suzanne Patterson of Esprit de Corp for sharing this HootSuite resolution.

  • Click the attach paper clip icon just underneath the HootSuite entry field.
  • Select a TWITTER profile, then select your correct FACEBOOK profile where you want the photo to actually go.
  • Click the upload photo icon under the update entry field.

Note the image will not be posted to your Twitter profile, only used to upload the photo as a workaround due to Facebook’s API.

You can see the visual instructions to perform these actions at HootSuite.
