Do you use Buffer? If you’re not using Buffer yet then you’re seriously missing out! Buffer is definitely one of the most valuable social media sharing tools you’ll ever find.
Buffer just makes life easier and is definitely the smarter way to share content; it allows you to schedule posts to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn so that you don’t bombard your followers with tons of posts all at once. Buffer has become so popular that it’s now integrated with 30+ awesome apps for the Web, browsers, and even mobile devices.
Today I want to share 5 awesome Web apps with Buffer integration that you really should consider using – if you aren’t already.
Buffer just announced its partnership with Feedly, and I’m sure many have rejoiced. I have a love/hate relationship with Feedly. I’ll often use it for a couple of months, but always end up going back to Google Reader for some reason.
At any rate, you can now Buffer items from feeds that you’re subscribed to right from Feedly. Since I’m such a huge Buffer fan, this is definitely enough to make me go back to using it for a while.
IFTTT has been covered a couple of times here on Blogging Tips already, so I won’t go into too much detail. I will say that you can use IFTTT to create awesome recipes that include Buffer, and will allow you to schedule tweets, Facebook, and LinkedIn posts with ease.
My personal favorite recipes involving Buffer are Twitter -> Buffer, Facebook Page -> Buffer, and RSS -> Buffer. You can find a ton of awesome recipes in IFTTT’s shared recipe archives.
Zapier is an online tool that is very similar to IFTTT, which lets you create “zaps” as opposed to recipes. You can use Buffer as a trigger or action here as well.
I have yet to try out Kippt for myself, but I’ve heard some great things about it. It’s a great place to collect your favorite links, interesting articles, and anything else you find while browsing the Web.

It “provides live social intelligence for marketers byanalyzing activity across all the major social networks.” You can use it to search, monitor, analyze, target, and engage with your followers and fans in real-time.
Why you’re searching and engagement, you can also share content that you find schedule it for posting to Twitter, Facebook, and/or LinkedIn thanks to Buffer.
Jugnoo is a similar tool that also integrates Buffer. It’s know as the “social CRM platform in the cloud.” I’ve been wanting to try Jugnoo out for a while; knowing that Buffer is included makes it even more appealing.
Commun.it is an awesome Twitter relationship manager that analyzes your social engagements, and helps you to focus on the relationships that matter most. I just started using Commun.it and it’s such a valuable tool; best of all, it’s free.
