Buffer is a social sharing tool that automagically shares content added to it to (your choice of) Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
Most commonly used with a browser extension or Buffer Button plugin, what makes Buffer so great is how easy sharing content at optimal times can be.
In your Dashboard, under Settings, you can determine what times of the day you want content to be shared from your social networks.
Then, as you read articles or posts online, you can click to add that article or post to your Buffer, and it will be shared via your social network(s) at one of the predetermined share times. You don’t have to worry about scheduling a tweet to go out nor that you are overwhelming your followers with a deluge of shared content in a very short period of time. All you need to do is to keep your Buffer “topped up” and it will handle the rest.
Buffer offers both free and paid plans. With the free plan, you are allowed 10 posts in your Buffer, and 1 account each from Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. When your buffer is empty, you will receive an email that notifies you are out of posts.
Buffer is an ideal way to share content you love… at your preferred times… without needing to be near your computer or smart phone.
