  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 "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!

            • Set a default text for each social media

              The ability to set a default text for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.

              In the settings you can set a default text such as;
              "Make sure to check out our website: www.facebook.com
              If you want to know more about xxx Like our page @pagename"

              If you click on *What do you want to share* you can add pictures or videos and the default text that you set in the settings will automatically be in the text field. That way you don't need to copy paste your standard post endings into every buffer post.

              It would be similar to an e-mail signature…

              • "Re-buffer" to act as "Retweet"

                When clicking "Re-buffer", I would actually prefer (in case of Twitter) for the respective udpate to be scheduled as a retweet rather than a standalone tweet. This would allow to capitalize on that tweet's existing engagements, rather than to build them from the ground up.

                • 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.

                  • Integrate Patreon

                    Like the title says, it would be great if we could schedule post to our Patreon page from buffer.

                    • Custom captions for instagram reposting

                      would be really cool if I could customise the caption of the instagram reposting! So for example every time when I Buffer an instagram repost it adds my custom text to the caption of the post! Like instead of "Reposting @username..." I can change it to: "Giving a shoutout to @username..."

                      • Posting to Bebee.com

                        With over 11 million registered users in a little over a year, and growing every day, every hour, every minute, every second. I would really love to see Bebee, the affinity network for professionals as one of the social networks in Buffer with rest of the networks.

                        • One calendar showing multiple social media accounts

                          I would love to be able to view one calendar that shows all my scheduled social media posts together to give me a better holistic view of my campaign--for example, Facebook and Twitter together in one calendar.

                          • Bulk actions for Content Inbox entries

                            It'd be super awesome if I could choose multiple posts from my Content Inbox and load them to a queue all with one click. For example, select all the posts I like from the Content Inbox, modify them however I want, and then click submit to load all of them to the queue at the same time.

                            • Ability to archive or organize inactive accounts to a separate section than active accounts

                              So the history isn't removed from accounts we'd like to remove from our interface, an option to set accounts either as inactive, or archive, would be a great new feature. If we can remove accounts from the main selection tool interface that we aren't using, but be able to turn them back on, or review history without them being in the active list, that would be very helpful.

To the many readers who have asked “will the ship leave without me?” - The answer is a definitive YOU BETCHA! Cruise ships run on a schedule – X-number of hours to dock at the next port, and they stick to it.

                                The only time Lorraine has seen exceptions to “departure time” is when a ship-approved shore excursion is running late – then there is a wait for passengers to return – otherwise, you…

                                    AFAIK Storyheap is the only competition. Its so obvious that I can't stress it enough.

                                    • iOS: bit.ly analytics in the Analytics menu

                                      For each post that contains a shortened link (via bit.ly, buff.ly or j.mp) add an option to the Analytics menu dropdown that sends you to the shortened link's analytics page.

                                      i.e. in addition to "Rebuffer" and "View Post" you have another option which sends you to the bit.ly analytics for the link in the post. For example, http://bit.ly/2oDQeno+

                                      This will allow users to track individual Link clicks without waiting for the server to refresh them in the Analytics view.
