    Pros: 

    Excellent tool. Scheduling posts, scheduling activity, curating content and supporting partners - it's got all you need.

    Cons: 

    The UI is OK, but sometimes I find myself getting lost. That said, I'm an early adopter - and I have upmost confidence in the Yatter team!

    I'm an early adopter, a vociferous social media user and someone who needs to keep organised. I also have a lot of friends/partners I like to support.

    Yatter helps me do all of these things, and more.

    Pros: 

    Quick to add scheduled posts, scheduling future interaction, seeing partners posts ahead of time, good overview of scheduled posts

    Cons: 

    UI needs to be tweaked, just a little though, it's really nothing that will get in the way of you using it day in day out.

    I like the company and the attitude towards their customers and what they want to do with the platform. I've been lucky enough to get to know the company and the staff a little and I'm always impressed with how hard they work to improve the system.

    I'm excited to see this platform grow, so give it a chance and try it out at least. Also reach out to the Yatter team on social as they love feedback, that's what makes the platform improve over time.

    Pros: 

    allows partners to interact with each others pets BEFORE they appear on social media. I can work iwhenever and schedule 21 days ahead!

    Cons: 

    Takes a little bit of getting used to but is easy once you know how.

    love Yatter's customer service, commitment to excellence, can do attitude and willingness to listen. Brilliant company, excellent product and so much talent

    Pros: 

    Collaborative scheduling. Know what others are saying socially before it is published. Never miss content

    Cons: 

    Unable to batch load, but the reason for this is explained as keeping the social in Social Media

    I have been using Yatter since July 2017 - I was one of the early adopters. I have found the training given by Richard and Colin to be excellent and the platform itself meets my needs. I have forged relationships with others that I would otherwise not have met and we comment and retweet each other's work. I also run a twitter hour. The backbone of this hour is shoutouts to certain accounts, thanks and highlighting accounts. Yatter allows me to schedule this in advance so that during the hour I can concentrate on retweeting the messages from the users, I can facilitate conversation and I can be seen. I used to be a Hootsuite fan, but since I have found Yatter, I have dumped HS. Try it out for yourself!

    Pros: 

    Simple to use on several platforms. It can't be overworked and it's fresh.

    Cons: 

    Re-authorising profiles and pages could be extended to say every 90 days, but I am splitting hairs here.

    Having a tool the make social scheduling easier is a gift to people that work in my space.

    No not MySpace but if Viant Technology wanted to do something worth while with the "Great Grandfather" of Social Media they would be wise to take some tips from Richard and his team at Yatter Social.

    I mean it's a gift for people that work in social media management or consulting. We spend our days showing people and companies how to use social media and how to be smart with it. Using Yatter is the smartest thing I have ever done as I can now handle more work and further demonstrate the good in social media.

    I have used this product for months now and I'm not turning back.

    Pros: 

    If the user reviews on here are real, they look promising.

    Cons: 

    Grey area business practices are off putting.

    I thought I'd read the reviews before signing up. I noticed some patterns in their Facebook reviews… No reviews for months at a time and then 4 reviews on the same day… all within 35 minutes. So I did a little research.

    Product Hunt

    Upcoming page had around 30,000 subscribers - yet the neighbouring pages all had between 50 and 200 subscribers, why is their number so high?

    The fake reviews make me question what other grey practices they’re using, I'd consider sticking with a reputable name such as Buffer, Hootsuite, Social Pilot or any of the other established products that do the same thing in a saturated social media market.

    I’m keeping my API keys away from these guys.

    How long before they start using customers social media accounts for their own gains?

    Pros: 

    Superb tool. Excellent support from a highly skilled team. Great for forward planning and collaboration.

    Cons: 

    Couple of early bugs but all quickly rectified by the Yatter team.

    Yatter has been a very useful tool for my organisation. It has allowed us to grow our online presence as well as expand our community and contacts. Having previously used similar products I would gladly recommend Yatter as we have experienced better results from a platform that is much easier to use.

    Pros: 

    Great way to schedule my content marketing and reduce disruptions for time sensitive engagements.

    Cons: 

    Navigating through the site is a bit difficult.

    I've been looking for a tool like this for a while. I feel so ahead of the game and extra strategic because I can time things like Retweeting something without having to drop everything to do it when the time is right.

    Pros: 

    The main premise of collabourating with others to increase impact and virality is a no brainer. Nobody else has bult a platform to do this

    Cons: 

    I need to get my social media team using it

    The guys are really motivated to build something to help us and are really talented so I am sure this will do really well.
