How does Postradamus stack up against Hootsuite?
It's not easy to compare Postradamus with Hootsuite because they really are different beasts.
Hootsuite tries to do everything it can when it comes to social media management, from posting to your profiles, checking and replying to direct messages, commenting on posts, sharing others posts and monitoring of your social media channels. Hootsuite tries to do it all. It really is a wonderful tool in its own right, but with all that power comes a lot of complexity. It's a trade off that comes along with any software. More features = more complexity.
Postradamus on the other hand tries to do one thing only and tries to do it really well. Posting to your profiles. Posting to your profiles comes with a few different steps. 1) Finding content, 2) Creating/modifying content 3) Posting/scheduling it. Postradamus tries to solve those 3 problems.
