Each Hootsuite plan type has a limit to the number of social networks that can be added to the dashboard. If you hit the limit, remove a social network to be able to add a new one.

Notes on adding social networks

Facebook:

  • If your Page or group doesn’t appear as an option when you try to add it, it likely means you don’t have Facebook admin permissions for the Page or group, or you didn't accept all the permission prompts when adding it. See here for details.

Instagram:

  • When your profile is added, you will be prompted to set up publishing in your mobile Hootsuite app. Learn more

Google+:

  • Each Google+ admin can connect up to 100 pages. Learn more
  • Google+ profiles are not supported in Hootsuite.

LinkedIn:

  • Each LinkedIn account can connect up to 100 groups or Pages.
