Hello! It doesn't matter who you are: a blogger, a journalist or an ordinary inhabitant of the Internet. In any case, you will be maintaining accounts on social networks, and more often than not alone. Today I want to tell you about an application that will help you do it wisely. Buffer is an application designed to manage social media accounts, allowing the user to schedule posts for Twitter, Facebook, Google +, Pinterest and LinkedIn.
The program can be downloaded from the AppStore absolutely free. At the first start you will be greeted with a brief instruction and a description of the purpose of the program. Next, we have to go through authorization through Twitter, Facebook, Linkedln, after which we need to enter your email.
After all the simple procedures, the main screen of the program appears before us. The “+” button will allow you to add a post to the program for further publication, by the way this post will be stored in the 'Content' tab.
There is a button next to it that will open for you a section with analytics of your posts. The analytics tools in the app are simple, but confident enough where you can track the number of retweets, mentions, etc.
The 'Schedule' tab allows you to schedule the posting schedule. For example, you can automatically schedule your tweets at 9 am, 3 pm, and 5 pm Monday through Friday and at 2 pm Saturday and Sunday.
There are 2 types of paid service packages available to the user: “Amazing Plan” and “Plan for Small Business”.
The first type will cost you $ 9.99 per month, receiving up to 100 messages in the buffer, up to 10 connected accounts, or $ 99 a year, and the package of services for small businesses will cost $ 99 monthly (25 connected accounts and up to 2000 scheduled posts).
In conclusion, we can determine that Buffer is an excellent program with an intuitive interface that copes with the assigned tasks for 5+.
