- Hootsuite has a whole list of accomplishments to brag about these days: a new acquistion, new funding, and passing a milestone of 10 million users.
- The social media management platform secured $35 million in a recent round of funding — bringing the estimated value of the company to $800 million.
- Also announced Thursday was the Hootsuite's acquisition of Brightkit — a service helped Hootsuite build its Hootsuite Campaigns feature, which allows users to manage contests and other custom social media campaigns.
With all the acquisitions, funding, and increased valuation, it seems like the social company could be gearing up for a public offering. Regardless, Hootsuite beefing up its offerings should be a draw for more marketing customers.
