You don't have to select the start of a sentence. SocialHootz will automatically upper case the first letter of any selection you make.

Ensure that when using the media selector that you are using images from websites that you own or have received permission to do so. To do otherwise will be breaking copyright and infringement laws which will affect your SocialHootz subscription.

The Campaigns section primarily integrates and works together with three other sections. The Contacts, Specials and Website External sections.
