Posted by name

is there a way to remove "posted by hootsuite" on social media posts? Is it an upgrade? Is it a setting? 


  • Hello @BusyFitMom,

    Thanks for reaching out on the Community Forum! 

    Please note that due to the design of Facebook's API, messages posted from third-parties (such as Hootsuite) will display a "via..." tag (such as "via Hootsuite") when posted to Facebook Profiles or Groups. Unfortunately, these tags are not removable, and I apologize for any inconveniences.

    However, when posting messages to Facebook Pages, the "via Hootsuite" tag will only be viewable by Admins of the Facebook Page and not to the public.

    If you have any further issues or concerns, please feel free to reply to this message.
