Unobtrusive software solution for sharing links on multiple social networks at the same time
The Buffer app resides in your status bar and stays out of your way at all times: when you want to use it, simply click on the menu bar icon, write down your message, and press the “Add to Queue” button placed in the bottom right corner of the app’s panel.
Note that your message is limited to no more than 140 characters, but you can easily include images: drag and drop the image file you want to attach on top of the Buffer status bar icon. In the Buffer panel you will be able to see a small thumbnail for the added image file, but you will also have the option to quickly remove it from your post.
Connect multiple social accounts and post status updates or share links in no time
To get started with Buffer, you must first connect to one of your social accounts. You should be able to connect with your Twitter or Facebook account, but you might encounter issues while trying to register.
The best way to proceed is to create a new Buffer account by using an email address, and then associate multiple social accounts (even if you connect with your Twitter, Facebook, or Linkedin credentials, you still need to provide a contact email address). Buffer allows you to handle Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, App.net, and Google+ accounts.
Minimalist application designed to help you manage the posting on multiple social accounts
The Buffer application is designed to be a desktop interface for the Buffer web service: you can connect to your account, and effortlessly post new messages in no time. However, the desktop app does not allow you to schedule the posts (a standard delay time is applied to each message), and you do not have the option to add new accounts (all the account management tasks are handled by the web console).
