Overall Satisfaction with Buffer

I use Buffer for my own social media scheduling for my blogs posts and also for my clients and our organisation's social content.
  • Easy to set up and use.
  • Connect to other social media tools such Quuu.
  • Maybe adding all there features into one affordable plan.
  • More social media platforms added.
5 - Marketing, content management, social media
  • Since using buffer I can't report much negative.
  • It has helped my clients build their brand and awareness on social media.
I would recommend Buffer for ease of use, social media intergration and costs, also Buffer rarely has any issues or downtime. If they do they warn you well in advance.
I will always recommend Buffer to anyone who is looking to grow their presence on social media and needs a go-to tool.

Buffer Reliability

Buffer does what it say on tin as they say! you can always count on Buffer. Buffer can be scale to 25 social account with 2,000 scheduled post which is enough for most agencies or businesses
Buffer is always on hand and very reliable, their software suite rarely has outages
Buffer interagates well with extensions, however with most cases of cross connecting software there are little issue sometimes but they are easy fix and you are able to work with them. Buffer UI loads quite quickly and does have ability to swith between two different UI if needed. Buffer original UI nd their new updated UI
