Space out your social media binging with Buffer #CraftHack

Posted By on Oct 21, 2013 in CraftHack


I don’t know about you but I tend to be a social media binger — I read blogs, Facebook, and Twitter and look at Pinterest once every week or two and then I want to share ALL THE THINGS! It is, of course, a horrible experience for my friends and followers to be inundated with posts all at once. As a business, you are also not likely to catch very many people by posting a bunch of things all at once. If they happen to be interested in a certain article, it will likely get buried under a bunch of articles they may be interested in. Enter Buffer.

Use Buffer for Social Media

Buffer is a wonderful online tool, iphone app, and Android app. There is also an extension for Chrome, Firfox, and Safari and host of other apps and goodies!

For every post you add, it spaces it out based on a schedule you define. This way I can binge on my social media reading, but have the links and thoughts posted through out the day in a reasonable fashion. You can also tell it EXACTLY when to post something!

Set the posting schedule for each account in Buffer.

It also adds a nifty “Buffer” button to twitter, so you can post right then OR Buffer it.
