Hootsuite Updates Its App With A Fresh Coat Of Material Design And Improved Facebook Pages Functionality

Facebook is looking to alleviate at least a bit of your frustration, as the company pushed a small update today that actually brings some fixes and adds new functionality to the app:

What's in this version:

• Turn push notifications on or off for each Page
• Upload a photo to a specific album
• Attach a photo to a status update
