I am the one doing the scheduling and planning of all the post for Twitter, G+ and LinkedIn. The most important thing is convenience. You can write one post and use it for all channels. I am planning my months in advance and schedule all my post for at least 2 weeks in advance, plus the posts that are spontaneous.
  • It is easy to use and setup.
  • Nice and clean UI
  • Great support if you need help or if you have any kind of feedback.
  • I am missing an iOS app. Since I am a heavy iPad Pro user an app would be much appreciated.
If you are using a lot of social media channels KUKU.io can help you to save a lot of time. Writing once and publishing it everywhere including scheduling your posts is the best.

I have worked as a marketing manger in-house and at agencies, as well as a freelance social media manager alongside these roles. I have been using KUKU.io for three years to schedule social media posts in all of these roles.

I was using KUKU as it allowed me to schedule posts in advance, saving me time during the working day and allowing me to do a week/month in advance when I had spare time.

However, I have recently decided to cancel my subscription to Kuku because the quality of the service has really decreased and the support team are unwilling to fix ongoing issues with the platform.
  • I wouldn't say ther are any particularly good things about KUKU.io that set them apart from any other scheduling tool.
  • io corrupts headlines of articles you reshare. When you schedule a post with a URL in it, the Title of the blog post that is displayed below the picture/preview gets corrupted. So if you add any text in with the URL, that will replace the headline. I have noticed this on both LinkedIn and Twitter.
  • Very poor support team. I have found that the support team at KUKU.io are extremely rude, unwilling to help you and take a long time to reply. On some occasions I have had to message them three times in the chatbot for them to even reply. None of these times has the issue been resolved. When I reported to them that KUKU.io was corrupting headlines, at first they refused to take responsibility. Finally, they admitted it was the platforms fault but said they were not doing anything at that time to fix it.
  • Analytics are poor. The analytics suite in KUKU.io does not give you anything analytics for LinkedIn. The ones it provides for Twitter you can get directly from Twitter. So no value is added there.
  • You cannot tag LinkedIn accounts. I use HubSpot to schedule social media posts which allows you to tag companies at least. KUKU.io cannot.
If you would like a reliable scheduling tool, KUKU.io is not the one to use. If you like to share lots of industry news, secondary content, or content from your website/blog, be aware that KUKU.io will corrupt the preview headline. You would be far better off using another scheduling tool.

I have now changed to a free tool and it has all the same capabilities without this corruption issue. I also used paid ones which are equally good.
The support team are extremely rude and often unresponsive.

All of the issues I have reported to Kuku has been responded to with "we are not looking to resolve this issue at this time."

On a few occasions, they have tried to deny the issue lies with them, before evidence has been provided. Then, they have refused to fix the issue.
