What is buffer scheduling?
Buffer scheduling is a simple web application that allows you to schedule social media posts across a wide range of popular social networks. It’s a stripped-down version of other popular social media management tools like TweetDeck and HootSuite, focusing mainly on post-scheduling.
Buffer scheduling can integrate with lots of social networks to post to them like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
Buffer Scheduling work style.
Buffer scheduling – Buffer is very easy to use, which is partly why it’s so popular. When you connect a social network to Buffer, you can start writing new posts to add to your mail queue.
Your mail queue is where all of your scheduled posts live as they wait to be posted. Posting times are set by default in your settings tab, which has been optimized for certain peak engagement times of the day (however you are free to customize these posting times any way you want).
Each time you add a new post to your queue, it is scheduled to automatically post to your account at each consecutive time. You also can share a post now or set a specific scheduled date and time for each new post you compose.
Reviews on the pros and cons of Buffer.
Buffer scheduling – Buffer is perhaps one of the simplest and fastest social networking channels on the market today; providing robust and critical functionality for handling social media sources. This app allows fast control of several social media pages, allowing you to configure post-times & days, and then plan updates easily through the queue for those days only. It provides built-in analytics, direct posting to Instagram & Instagram posts, team collaboration tools & more-assuming you’re able to pay for those features. Overall, Buffer was my favourite social media management tool because of its simplicity and simple functionality, but it still fails in a few main areas.
Buffer scheduling – I liked using Buffer for the moment that I actually used it but I soon found that the platform could not fulfil my needs because of one insurmountable obstacle-price. As a non-profit youth group, providing a low overhead for sites like this is incredibly necessary, and I soon found myself unable to continue using Buffer as my social media team expanded simply because I couldn’t afford their CAD 65/month just to get a second person (without admin privileges).
Added features like direct Instagram Story & first message sound appealing to me, but not at a cost of the year as there are options (be it or fewer features) out there that provide lower overhead costs AND non-profit discounts.
Buffer scheduling – Furthermore, although the platform itself is incredibly easy to use, I found its pricing structure and various brand building items to be very confusing-with items such as “Reply” “Publish” and “Analyze” featuring little or no instantly accessible details, each with a separate pricing structure and subscription criteria.
Finally, one feature I’ve seen on other social media sites (but not on the buffer) that I would like to have been available is the option to build a single post that can be queued through various social media networks and personalized for each channel. With a buffer, you’d need to replay and post-which can take extra time depending on the social media platforms.

What one is easier and better overall: Buffer or Hootsuite?
Buffer is cheaper for companies, but Hootsuite offers you more at any step of the package. ... Hootsuite restricts you to a total of 30 scheduled posts, while Buffer makes 10 scheduled posts per social media site. Each service also provides a low priced Pro version—$15 per month for Buffer and $29 per month for Hootsuite.
