Bloggers Toolbox

Buffer is a tool used to schedule sharing of posts to social media like Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest at times that you set up.

I use Buffer when I come across bloggers posts that I find interesting (primarily when I’m reading updates in Feedly), and want to share it on social media. It was recently updated so that pictures can now be shared along with the text.

Buffer App

I also use the Buffer Add-On for Firefox (there’s extensions for Chrome and other browsers), so that when I come across an interesting post while surfing the net, I can schedule that to be shared as well.

Your social media profile should include more than just your own stuff – sharing of other blogger’s work will win you friends, followers and attract more people to your niche – a win win for everyone.


Do you use Buffer? Do you schedule your social media shares? What do you use?

  1. Oooh – great idea to schedule other people’s stuff that you share! I usually just share it whenever I come across it, but should probably use buffer for this, since I use it anyway! Thanks for the tip!

    1. @Sarah this way you don’t share a bunch of stuff at once 🙂
