Buffer | Twitter | Facebook | Triberr


I love anything to do with Social Media, extensions and applications! When I see something new and if I feel I could use the tool then I will check it out! So a few days ago while I was Stumbling around I found Buffer!

The creators of Buffer, Joel Gascoigne and Leo Widrich explain how it works, “We designed Buffer to offer you a both personal and yet more efficient solution to handle Twitter.  Buffer makes your life easier with a smarter way to schedule tweets. Work out all your tweets at one point in time during the day.  Then fill up your Buffer with your tweets and Buffer schedules them for you.  Simply keep that Buffer topped up and you will then be tweeting consistently all day round, all week long.”

Of course you can schedule your tweets with either TweetDeck or Hootsuite, as I have used before. One of the features that makes Buffer different is that it also includes the “Inspire me!” button.  Different quotes will appear for you to tweet to your followers.  If you “Post Now” your post will immediately show up on Twitter or if you choose “Add to Buffer” it will be scheduled to tweet in the future based on the schedule you have chosen.

Right now Buffer is available on Chrome, Safari and Firefox, or you can add the Bookmarklet.  I only use Chrome, so I am not sure if the Buffer icon is visible on the other extensions’ tweets.  As you can see below Buffer appears on the tweet.
Click on Buffer directly on Twitter and then you can edit and schedule your RT.
You can even check the Analytics of your tweets right on Buffer. Here is a tweet that went out today at 12:17 PM.  So far there were 35 clicks and 2842 potential views. 
I am enjoying the ease and time saving features that Buffer has to offer both on Twitter and Facebook. I have also been using Buffer on Triberr with the Promotional Tweets.  My Christmas wish is that Dino Dogan and Dan Cristo from Triberr will add the Buffer icon as an option for us to use when we share our Tribemate’s posts!

    Have heard of Buffer before, but never tried it out. The quote feature is cool, however, I've personally selected several hundred quotes that I identify with that I tweet out from time to time.

    I used to use Goodreads for all my quotes. Now I don't have to. There are other benefits of this tool that I really like. Thanks Gerry for always visiting!

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But just imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the very best in its niche. Excellent blog!
