Does open site explorer recognize social shares that use URL shorteners instead of the direct URL?
Of course there is value in using Hootsuite (shorter posts = longer Tweets, scheduling, etc) but if by using Hootsuite which forces me to use their URL shortener I am #1) getting diminished link credit from the 301/302 redirecting and #2) not getting social share counts to show to my client... then I might just have to stop using Hootsuite and go direct and input the whole URL.
Side note: It's really unfortunate that Hootsuite has not adapted to the Twitter auto long URL shortner (not a separate URL like bit.ly or owl.ly but like URL.com/xyz... ) as that would solve this problem altogether.”
