Tech Tip: Use Buffer to curate and share content on social media


Buffer ScreenshotSocial media marketing can be overwhelming for anyone pressed for time or anyone that is not able to post to social media sites at the ideal times. Buffer is a great app for finding and sharing content on social media sites that can simplify your social media marketing.


Using Buffer you can  utilize predefined times to post to social media websites or create your own. Then you can add both original and curated content to a queue to be posted automatically at the relevant time. You can also manually rearrange the order of items in the queue.


Another great thing about Buffer is that it offers suggestions of curated content that you may be interested in sharing. You can easily add desired content to your queue to be posted at a later time.

Getting Started

You can sign up for Buffer by creating an account using your email address or by associating it to a Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn account. The free version of Buffer restricts you to only one account per network while you can connect up to 10 in the paid version. The free version also limits you to 10 posts in your queue while the paid version raises this limit to 100.

Buffer is available on the web from the Buffer website or as an app for Android and iOS. You can also download the buffer extension for Firefox or Chrome to be able to add content from any site you are visiting to your buffer queue via a Buffer button in the browser.
