  1. Support for the new Google Posts feature

    Google has released Google Posts which allows businesses to post to their Google My Business page. These posts are up to 300 characters and can include buttons and images. We would love to see support for this within Buffer so we can continue to schedule all content through one platform. Thanks!

    • 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.

      • Notes for pre-planned posts

        I would love a feature that can add notes to planned posted. I plan for specific posts on certain days and it would be great to have notes for each day. Just like the set time, it could have a note that says "video post" or "Meme post", etc.

          • Improved Schedule Options with content type

            For each posting time there could be a colored tag that identifies the type of content (for example, "original content" "curated" "repost" "recipe" "contest" "advice" etc) so in the end we would visually see an editorial calendar and know on what type of content is needed. When writing a content there should be an option to choose one of the available tags: the new content would then be put in the queue of said tag.

            • 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 Integration for 'Posts on Google'

                Integration with 'Posts on Google' would allow businesses and brands to post directly to their brand search frontpage Google results (SERP).
                While this was originally in beta limited to select brands and celebrities this has now been opened up to all businesses (as of June 2017)

                  • Group profiles social left column

                    Hello, I would to organize all social accounts in groups. I refer to left column where they appears all together. I have created some groups to publish, but I refer to the left column. I manage multiple accounts and it could be great to group all of them in order to reduce the number of profiles and avoid a large list. Thanks

                      • Schedule by Category

                        I'd like the ability to put new posts in various categories and then create my posting schedule by category because certain posts do better at certain times, and we don't want 10 similar posts (e.g. all from our blog) to post consecutively.

                        So an example schedule for Twitter might be:

                        [Monday]
                        8am blog post
                        11am video
                        2pm promotional

                        [Tuesday]
                        10am external lifestyle share
                        2pm customer profile
                        5pm Instagram share

                        [Wednesday]

                        9am promotional
                        12pm blog post
                        3pm brand partner promo

                        [Thursday]

                        8am #tbt
                        11am Instagram share
                        3pm external lifestyle share

                        [Friday]

                        10am new product preview
                        12pm inspirational quote
                        3pm promotional

                              When exporting a csv file, it would be super helpful and a time saver to have links included, that accompany these posts.

                              • default check off by default instead of on

                                right now, when you add a new profile to buffer, share by default is checked on by default rather than off. I work for an agency with hundreds of accounts, so this could be a disaster if we forget to turn it off each time we add an account. I think it should be off by default, not on.

                                • Allow the setting for shortening links to be turned off account wide, this way if you are using your own custom shortener you do not have to

                                  Allow the setting for shortening links to be turned off account wide, this way if you are using your own custom shortener you do not have to do it individually.

                                  Ideally for most use cases you could have a global setting to toggle. This way if say a user wants to use bit.ly for all accounts then you only have to select this once.
