BuzzCast is great for large, complex online events - especially during the pandemic when it's been hard or impossible to gather folks in person.If you only need a smaller group of 5 or 10 people, BuzzCast is probably overkill. Once you have lots of people / multiple sessions, or want to capture and save presentations for later, you'll want to start looking at BuzzCast.
One thing you need to watch is if your source of content puts out 50 articles a week, it may be too much to automate. You can adjust how many posts get shared per day and there's a limit on the free account. I recommend choosing content sources that publish no more than 5 times a week.
- The BuzzCast platform was excellent in every way.
- The platform is sleek and easy to use, both the backend and the UX.
- The entire team at BuzzCast is supportive and works hard to make your event a complete success.
- Building and deploying the conference was made easy by the expertise and hard-working BuzzCast staff.
- Within the platform it would be great to have direct access to make edits changes (I believe this functionality is in process)

- Support of the product was a bit hit and miss. Some of the functionality I enjoyed that made me sign up in the first place like the ability to repost a tweet by clicking on it was taken away suddenly with no explanation. Although it was sort of replaced with EverQueue.
- The interface was glitchy at times especially around creating categories and timings for bulk post scheduling. Eventually worked around it to make it work for me.
- No phone app was a major disappointment as I find lots of stuff to post from my mobile.

Problems are quickly worked out with their support. I haven't had any issues except in the initial setup, and their support folks walked me through it.
BuzzCast platform has the most amount of features that our events require (public chat/private chat, breakouts, auto-scrolling agenda). The entire platform is built and designed so that it's intuitive for our viewers and they are shown exactly how to operate the platform in under a minute. The quality of the stream is superior. The BuzzCast team is great to work with and are true partners who are all solution-oriented.

Buffer and Dlvr.it don't compare as apples to apples, but there are areas where one is better than the other. For price and automating social media posts, Dlvr.it is better, but for content curation I've found Buffer to be easier.
