Add and manage streams - Android

Streams display the content from your connected social networks. With streams, you can monitor the activity in your networks and engage in conversations on social. Add a social account to Hootsuite first, and then add streams for each one.

Organize streams under tabs, much like tabs on filing folders. Each Hootsuite account can add up to 20 tabs, and each tab holds 10 streams. To learn more, see Organize your streams in tabs - Android.

Note: Tabs are now called boards in Hootsuite desktop.

If you already have tabs and streams set up in the desktop dashboard, these will be reflected in your app. Changes made in either the app or desktop dashboard will sync with the other.


Note: Some Hootsuite streams are only supported on desktop. View which streams are available on mobile in the following section.
