Buffer.com Guides

What isBuffer?

  • Buffer is a social media managing and scheduling tool.
  • Available via your desktop and as a mobile APP (iPhone or Android)
  • Connect your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+ accounts
  • New (July 2016) – Instagram reminders https://buffer.com/instagram

Individual Plan: Free

  • On the Individual (free) Plan, you can connect one profile for each social account. (So, one Twitter, one Facebook, one Google+ and one LinkedIn).
  • You can also store up to 10 posts for each profile at any given time.

Awesome Plan: $10/month or $102/year

  • Up to 10 social profiles (as opposed to just one of each). So, you could manage multiple accounts (like multiple company Twitter accounts or personal ones along with professional ones.)
  • Up to 100 Posts in your Buffer (as opposed to only storing 10 at a time). This means you can add posts pretty much as far ahead as you would like to.
  • Varied schedules. With the Individual Plan you can choose days and times but not different times for different days. So, I can have my posts go out at 3 PM and 5 PM, Monday and Wednesday. On the paid plan, you can have 3 go out every Monday, 2 on Tuesday, 6 on Friday, etc. All at whatever times you set.
  • 15 RSS Feed per connected profile. You’re able to connect up to fifteen feeds for each of your connected profiles.

Social Calendar
Any posts you’ve added to the ‘Queue’ of Buffer will automatically show up in the Social Media Calendar when you click the ‘Calendar’ button under the ‘Content’ tab.
