Import Social Media Updates from Other Tools

This guide is based on RecurPost’s older version of the import plugin. We have released a new user interface. You should head to our newer guide on how to import posts from other tools.

RecurPost is considered the best alternative to Hootsuite and a number of other tools. A lot of users who came over to RecurPost from Hootsuite asked us if there was an easy way to bring the social media posts they shared using Hootsuite over to RecurPost.

We finally decided to make it possible. You can now quickly bring your social media posts from any other social media management tool to RecurPost using our Import plug-in.

You will not need to upload your images or videos, add your links, or even write those lengthy Facebook posts again. We will automatically copy them over.

You will also be able to categorize your content, which is not possible with a lot of popular tools out there, including Hootsuite and Buffer. Did you know that RecurPost is a social media management tool that is recommended by Buffer if you want to manage your content into different categories?

Our plugin first pulls all your posts from social media, then lets you filter it based on the method you used to share it, such as directly from your phone or computer, using a third-party app, or a native app of the platform.

We also let you filter your content based on whether your social media post has an image or video. This comes handy, for instance, if you want to ignore those Tweets that did not have an image, a video, or a link attached to it.

Without much ado, let us look at the exact steps needed to import your content into RecurPost.
