Buffer helps me manage all my company's social media handles from a place. I connected my Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook pages so whenever I have an information to pass, I just lo-gin to my buffer dashboard.
I also schedule posts and good a thing, the free plan allows up to 10 scheduled posts per day which is pretty good for me.
In scheduling posts, if they can change the time to West African time it'll be great.
Also, I always have to reauthorize my Twitter account which is not so annoying, I which thy can do something about that too.
Buffer app is great, I use the free plan which allow up to 10 schedules per day and it's okay for me. If you need more than that, you can as well upgrade to the premium.
It has helped me manage my company's social media handles without having to log-in to the accounts.
Pros: east to use on one on click i can share my post almost on all social media networks like facebook ,instagram and many other. help my scheduling my post and also have great extension for chrome
Cons: word limit on twitter is less then 180 word that's the problem i face so far
Overall: our my experience with buffer is great real time saver product and worth you money
Pros: I loved this tool, it has made my life tan time easier!
You can plan and schedule your social media posts only using this platform. Making easier to write, copy and edit your captions, manage the media files you are going to share and it even has an analytics tool that will show you how your posts are performing.
This is my favorite part, analytics feature will help you analize which kind of posts are performing better and which kind of posts you need to improve. This is key information, specially if you manage someone else's account, not only to improve these social accounts but also to report the results of your work.
Cons: I would love to see more details about engagement results in Instagram for example. There is so many metrics that should be consider nowadays, but the analytic's feature does not provide information for all of them.
The best thing i like about buffer.com is definitely their chrome plugin, using buffer's chrome plugin is probably the easiest way to schedule post to my social accounts. Works great for queuing images on my pinterest and twitter account. I also love how simple their UI is and how easy it is to use even on the day one.
The only reason i stopped using buffer as of now is the pricing, i understand building such a massive tool comes at a price and the their premium subscription price may be fair from their point of view but for me its just too expensive. Buffer does everything just about right except the pricing.
A Great service for people who are just getting started or even for professionals. They has the perfect browser plugins that will enable you to collect and queue stuffs quickly off the web to your social media profiles. Its definitely worth a try.
To be honest even as of now buffer is the best tool to queue content on pinterest and twitter. I only say pinterest and twitter cause those are the only two sites I've used buffer on. I like that i can even set the time when posts are gonna be published on my accounts, that way i can publish post exactly on that time of the day when they are more likely to get viewed my my followers.
Pros: Buffer's free tear is extremely helpful in itself allowing you to post directly to the big 3 - Facebook, Instagram, And Twitter and set up the post calendar. Then once on a paid tier, unlike others, it's not extremely expensive and makes it a worthwhile cost per month on a marketing budget.
Cons: I strongly dislike the buff.ly urls. I understand that they need them to track click link clicks but I know there's a way to hide this or do it a prettier and more user-friendly format. It just makes it really automated and insincere when customers and followers see that buff.ly url.
Overall: Great. Was able to grow our Instagram and others by scheduling post in advance so I can save time and batch process all our social media posts for the next 2 weeks.
Managing social network accounts efficiently is one of the main objectives of my trade, it is currently very demanded by organizations or companies to have a community manager, and I particularly think that having a correct software portfolio makes the difference, is why buffer is part of this portfolio, the ease of publishing content on multiple platforms effectively and integration as a complement to Chrome makes it worthy to be my favorite ally.
They must improve two aspects and is in favor of this platform is perfect, the first is the flaws that are commonly presented with istagram and the second and last in my case is to improve the functionality of labeling.
Although it facilitates the work and saves you effort if you make a correct programming I do not recommend leaving it alone, do weekly monitoring or as often as you decide to work on insurance.
Manage the social networks of my clients, program the contents and publish them automatically. Increase in the visibility of the accounts I manage.
Pros: - Free plan
- Has grown to now offer publishing, communication management, and analytics
- Has good collaboration features making it easy for teams to jump in and out
Cons: No cons-Buffer's product has always felt a lot tighter than other competitor social planning tools, and while some tout extra features, I've never needed more than what Buffer offers.
Overall: Buffer is always on the list of the first 5 tools to get set up with a new start up, or when coming in to make a start up more productive. Starting on free and scaling with the business works well, and I've never had any issues or anything that's made me desire more than what the platform offers (yet they continue to add features!)

Con esta herramienta he podido gestionar mis redes sociales perfectamente y sobretodo he podido optimizar mi tiempo en ellas.
Pros: The interface is quite simple yet clear and easy to avigate. Since it centralizes social media in one place, it's good that it didn't end up cluttered or hard.
Cons: Their pricing model makes no sense, having to pay separately for different plans to post and to reply and get analytics. It'd be like Microsoft Word charging you 1 license to write text and a 2nd to edit it. Wish it were possible to upload .srt files with video.
Overall: I use Buffer 3-4 times a week to schedule social media posts to multiple platforms for a freelance marketing job.
Pros: I like that I can post on multiple platforms at once. I post almost daily for my job, so this makes it super easy for me! I also love that you can access it through a web page and not just an app. I really appreciate that feature!
Cons: I've had trouble connected the companies Instagram to Buffer. Since it wouldn't connect, I had it send me notifications to remind me to post on Instagram. It never did! The Instagram connection is the weakest part of Buffer. I wish it was more fluid, it connected with Facebook and Twitter very easily.
Overall: It makes it easier for me to post on Facebook and Twitter because I can plan weeks in advance. I don't have to do it day by day, since Twitter doesn't allow scheduling posts.
