Vancouver-based HootSuite has added two major social media networks to its App Directory.
Tencent Weibo and VK.com's integration with HootSuite is evidence of the Canadian company's global ambitions. Tencent Weibo is a popular China microblogging platform with more than 540 million registered accounts. VK.com is Russia's largest social media network with over 200 million users. HootSuite now also supports Russian language on its dashboard.
Similar to Twitter and Facebook publishing networks, the Tencent Weibo and VK.com apps are useful for community managers, content producers, marketing professionals, public relations practitioners who already use HootSuite to engage through social media with global audiences.
“Adding Tencent Weibo and VK.com to our lineup lets our users expand their reach around the world,” says Ryan Holmes, CEO of HootSuite. “Social has no boundaries. In fact, HootSuite has users in nearly every country worldwide, and is available in 15 languages and counting."
Many major brands use Tencent Weibo, including Coca Cola, Red Bull, and the NBA.
HootSuite’s App Directory now features more than 50 social networks and tools, including an arsenal of internationally focused app integrations like Orkut, Viadeo, Xing, Sina Weibo and Renren.
