Vancouver, BC – May 24, 2022 — Today, Hootsuite announced that it has upgraded the content sharing capabilities within Amplify by Hootsuite for Microsoft Teams.
By way of this enhanced content experience, new features and functionalities have been built into the integrated ecosystem within Teams.

In 2021, Hootsuite unveiled its integration into Teams, which has enabled brands to extend their reach through social influence, transform employees into engaged advocates, and reduce risk by providing shareable messaging that is accurate, clear and on-brand. Through Amplify by Hootsuite, brands are uniquely positioned to simultaneously increase their online visibility and leverage employee advocacy across the organization.
