  1. Support Mastodon, the open-source social network

    Think of Mastodon as an open-source alternative to Twitter.

    With it, you can create your own servers or communities known as *instances*.

    The flagship instance is mastodon.social, but others are cropping up.

    https://mastodon.social has already seen 30,000 users register with 500 registering every hour as of now.

    Buffer support would allow people a cross-platform presence that wouldn’t mean abandoning services like Twitter—unless they want to.

    Link to the project repo: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon.

      • See a Preview of "For Review" Posts in Calendar and Queue

        We’d really love to use the review feature. The problem is, that pre-scheduled posts don’t appear in the calendar (like with a grey dotted line around them). The only show up in the review list. That makes it hard to plan ahead and clearly see, which days and weeks have been already covered. So, right now we’re not using the review process at all, instead the editor mails the corrector that a new post has been created, the editor answers back per mail. That’s a pretty complicated workflow. We used CoSchedule before, there was a way to tag posts by…

        • Add a Facebook branded content feature, so we can schedule sponsored posts from Buffer

          Facebook now requires sponsored posts to be tagged using their branded content feature. This means we can no longer schedule sponsored Facebook posts from Buffer; we have to schedule those posts from Facebook instead.

          It'd be great if we could do all our scheduling from Buffer again.

          • Adobe Lightroom Plugin

            Like many professional photographers, I spend quite a bit of time processing images in lightroom. A plug-in would be an efficient way to share images I want to utilize on my social platforms. Currently I need to export into a folder, and then upload into buffer the images I want to share. Ideally, there would be a plugin that would allow me to incorporate an export to Buffer directly from lightroom as I finalize images to reduce the steps in my workflow. I imagine the result would be more posts.

            Ideally, this would be into a repository for images/content that…

            • Add a spellchecking feature within the 'What do you want to share?' content creation areas.

              I prefer to write within Buffer (Twitter 140 characters), rather than copy content in, so it would be great if Buffer could check any spelling and grammar as I type to avoid errors.

              • Add .GIFs from a GIPHY library from within the Scheduler.

                Hootsuite lets you add a .gif from a giphy library when you're drafting your content by just pressing /gif, which pulls up a search bar for loads of .gifs. You can then post them in your content. You should do that too!

                • Add a "Counter" (number / functionality) to your "Rebuffer" icon so that we know how many times we have reposted...

                  We all know that we should get the most mileage out of our hard-produced original content... So we use the "Rebuffer" button to repost our best content.

                  However, most of us I guess would never want to recycle the same content more than say, 3 or 4 times, even for highly successful content, for fear of boring our audiences.

                  So a simple counter next to your "Rebuffer" icon would be great, showing us how many times in total we have posted each piece of content. Thanks!

                        • I'd like to see Buffer supporting Minds.com

                          Minds.com is receiving a large uptick in traffic as platforms such as facebook, twitter and youtube are removing free speech and ideas, and youtube especially is demonetising smaller channels and channels that don't go along with the corporate groupthink.

                          Last week, Pewdiepie, the largest youtube channel with over 54 million subscribers, made less than $100 on one of his videos due to demonetisation. The big alt media channels are openly pushing for the move to Minds.com and the people are arriving there now in record numbers, with some of these guys seeing tens of thousands of new subscribers show up…

                          • Missing logout or switch accounts button on /start

                            If you login via twitter and it's not the right Twitter there's no way to back out of the start page. Even clicking on the logo brings you back to the start page. I had to close the tab and go through google to exit the loop.
