Overall Satisfaction with Buffer
I use Buffer as a scheduling tool on a few clients for Facebook and Instagram only. I do not use their reporting features.
- Ease of scheduling
- Easy to use
- List view is helpful in some cases
- Sometimes I prefer a calendar view
- Sometimes glitchy when uploading photos
- No ability to preview a post
1 - I am the only person at my organization to use Buffer. I am a social media strategist and help clients with overall social strategy, as well as scheduling organic content on a monthly basis.
- Increase in fundraising for our clients (through scheduled fundraising posts)
Buffer is a very cost-friendly tool with similar functionality to the tools above (Hootsuite/Sprout Social). While the other tools may offer more functionality or a better user experience, Buffer is by far the most cost-friendly option that still allows for a good and reliable user experience when scheduling posts to social platforms.
Buffer is a great basic social media scheduling tool. It has a few bells and whistles without over-complicating the user interface. I do notice some glitches with posts not being published correctly. I also wish there was the ability to preview posts within the platform, as well as the ability to tagg other brands.
