Hootsuite is one of the best free web client I have used so far but seems like in coming week I have to say good bye to Hootsuite and start with some alternative to it. If you are not aware of Hootsuite, read my review of hootsuite.
Hootsuite is one of the best twitter web client which let you manage multiple Twitter account from Web interface and allow team member to be a part of it. Hootsuite used to be one of the best free feature rich twitter web client but from now onwards it can’t be considered as free twitter client.
In a blog announcement Hootsuite CEO Ryan Holmes announced that Hootsuite is now Freemium ( a business model that works by offering basic Web services, or a basic downloadable digital product, for free, while charging a premium for advanced or special features). All the users who will sign up with hootsuite need to select a plan.
Starting today (Wednesday, Aug. 11th), all new customers will be required to select a plan upon signing-up — including choosing the free option if desired.
The following week, current Hoot Suite users will be asked to choose a package with the help of a migration wizard to help you choose the best plan.
I’m already using Hoootsuite to manage my multiple Twitter ID’s like @callingallgeeks @shoutmeloud @wphostingdiscount @denharsh. And also I feed all my feeds via Hootsuite but if I decide to continue using Hootsuite in future use, I might need to select their Bronze plan which is almost 4.99$/month and is not bad.
Here is a chart of hootsuite plan:
Basic plan is still useful for those who have one blog and one or two Twitter handle. I would love to know your reaction on Hootsuite going Freemium? As an alternative you might like to try your hands on Social oomph.
Are you a Hoot Suite user? Are you going to buy any premium plan from Hootsuite or will be using some hootsuite alternative?
