Overall Satisfaction with Buffer

We use Buffer to post our social content out to our profiles to save us some time and to make sure our content is consistent. In fairness, our social media work is not breath taking but for what we need, Buffer is great and was not cost prohibitive. Some limitations but generally quite good.
  • Posting to multiple social channels at once saves a lot of time.
  • Good list of social channels to connect to.
  • Pricing is quite good vs. competitors.
  • Disconnects to social profiles occasionally.
  • Just redid their user interface and it is harder to plan monthly content.
  • Can't tag users in some social platforms.
3 - We have three users on Buffer. All are either running social for our own business or for clients. We do not get into the analytics too much as provided by Buffer so we cannot comment on that but it helps us be more efficient with our planning and posting for ourselves and clients.
  • Saves us a lot of time on our own social media.
  • Allows us to facilitate clients' social media much more efficiently.
  • The occasional disconnecting of profiles is frustrating.
At the time of deciding, we went with Buffer because it had the most options for connecting to different social accounts and was the best priced option in return for features. We had tried others but this was most suited to what we required and was not too pricey.
If you needed a utility that could allow you to post to several social channels at once, Buffer is as good as anything else on the market. There might be better ways in general to handle your social media but if bulk uploading is what you need, this is a good option.
