Productivity Wednesday #6 : Share Digital Content on Social Media with Buffer

If you read a lot of digital content, you should share a lot.  The problem is that you probably read in spurts. If you shared in spurts, you would probably annoy your friends.  Buffer helps fix that problem.

Buffer has great extensions for a number of browsers/applications.  These extensions allow you with the click of a button to share the page you are currently on with a number of social media accounts.

If you want to share it right away click “Post Now”, if you want to space out your sharing click “Buffer” and it will put it in a queue to be sent later.  You are in control (by social media account) of when items in your queue will be sent out. It takes your timezone into account.  You also control what url shortener to use.

Want stats with that?  I assumed so.  Buffer does a great job of letting you know whether what you are sharing is getting interacted with by your followers (regardless of platform).

So what are you waiting for?  Get your productivity on and start seamlessly sharing with your friends.


  1. Buffer is pretty sweet. Plays well with IFTTT, too, which is a great way to supercharge it.

    For example, I have an IFTTT recipe hooked into both Tumblr and Buffer. When I post new pictures to my Tumblr, they are added to Buffer, which staggers them out to my @TEAMGBXM account. Nice way to automate things.

  2. Brian,

    I haven’t played too much with IFTTT, but was going to and make a post. Perhaps you would be willing to do a guest post for Productivity Wednesday with some IFTTT tips?

  3. I was such an early adopter of Buffer that I got a handwritten letter from Germany from the app’s creator. I still love it, and indeed it works really well with IFTTT, an app I also adopted early. That’s why I look so prolific:-)
