There is an exciting new update coming from Buffer, that I wanted to share with you. The App, which aims to help you share more of the great content you come across each day has released a fantastic new feature.
What is Buffer?
Already featured here on Famousbloggers a few months ago, the App offers a completely new way to share content. Whenever you read an article that is interesting, you just click the Buffer icon with one of the browser extensions for Chrome, Safari or Firefox.
By adding tweets to your Buffer, they will be posted for you well spaced out over the day. This means you can focus on reading your news, drop Tweets into your Buffer and never feel you need to check Twitter immediately.
Using Buffering patterns for more efficient tweeting
As Buffer posts your Tweets at fixed times each day that you can determine, many users see the need to pause the Buffer every now and then. For example, you don’t want to put your Buffered tweets “to waste” over weekends, whilst there are less people online.
This is where Buffering patterns come in. You can now create different patterns for when your tweets go out each day. So say for example during weekdays, you have a higher frequency of tweets posted. And for weekends you can setup a new pattern, with less tweets.
Here is how it looks:
Going that step further
The aim is that you can adjust these patterns more to your personal Tweeting habits. You can even go one step further and decide to create individual patterns for each individual day.
This might be particularly interesting if you are working together with an App called Tweriod, that shows you the best times to Tweet each day. Combining the two makes for a fantastic and much more efficient way of Tweeting.
If you tuned in to Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement speech last week, you might remember that he mentioned an astonishing insight about news sharing. As time passes, we, as users online, are increasing the amount we are sharing exponentially.
This is where Buffer comes in as a very valuable tool. As we all continue to share more and more online, finding a way that spaces out these pieces in order not to overwhelm our friends and followers is key. If you haven’t tried Buffer yet, you can give it a go here.
