    Bad Luck Hootsuite Hacked 

    Bad Luck Brian

    I’ve been using Hootsuite for a few years now and until today I have absolutely loved it. It has beaten out TweetDeck, and a slew of other promising social media tools to be my Go To social media tool online and on my phone and tablet. With Sprout Social being my Go To for pretty executive reporting. I’ve had no major problems or complaints regarding Hootsuite ever. Well that changed tonight when my account got hacked and spewed spam links to my 20+ personal and professional accounts. I quickly deleted all instances of spam links, changed passwords all over the place, and turned to Twitter, Facebook and Google for answers, to apologize to those offended, and to see if anyone else has had this happen.

    It turns out that there has been a lot of hacked Hootsuite accounts this week and plenty of people making noise about it. But my problem comes from there not being a peep about it from the official twitter accounts or the Hootsuite blog. Of course I don’t know what has happened yet to cause my account to be compromised and in the meantime I have changed every password I can and have disconnected every social media account from my Hootsuite pro account until further notice.  Not too long ago Hootsuite employed the annoying CAPTCHA system before you could login to your account. And my faith in them was bolstered by the recent announcement of $165 Million in new VC funding. 

    I understand these things happen and I’m a forgiving guy. But just let me know what is going on please?!

    But now after spending about 2 hours cleaning up this mess and explaining to angry clients what has happened, I don’t have the same enthusiasm. In fact I’m just really annoyed on a Sunday evening. Any other insight into this is welcomed in the comments below

    UPDATE! I got hit today with this wonderfully ironic promoted tweet:


    Here are some other Tweets about the Hootsuite Hacking of late:

    The Facebook Email Situation 

    Facebook released an arguably failed email system over a year  and a half ago. Code Name: Project Titan! What it ended up being is a unified messaging system for IM & Email like messaging, that can technically be used for email as well. From an email perspective, I don’t think it got mass adoption as the Gmail killer it was touted to be. So today they replaced the default email address to @facebook.com on all of their nearly 1 billion member profiles today. The tech media is screaming about it, but will the regular folks? Or will they react to it like “First Day On The Internet Kid Here?” Time will tell. But I think it sucks.
