Remove a social account


Removing a social account deletes it entirely from the Hootsuite dashboard. Past and currently scheduled content for that account will also be removed, as well as analytics data. For example, if you have a post scheduled to your Twitter and Instagram accounts but remove your Instagram account, the scheduled post will only publish to your Twitter account.

Important: Deleting a Facebook Page from Hootsuite also deletes any associated ad accounts.

To learn how to save content before removing the social account, see Export your scheduled posts.
