    • 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!

      • YOURLS: URL shortening

        Any chance that YOURLS (http://yourls.org/) can be added as the URL shortening service? I know many of us host our own URL shortening service via YOURLS, and getting Buffer to use that will keep our branding consistent.

        Thanks!

          Thanks so much for the great idea and comments on this! I can definitely see how useful it would be to have an alternative to bit.ly for link shortening. This isn’t currently on our roadmap but is something that we’re keen to explore in more detail soon. So sorry for the long wait we’re causing, we will keep this idea updated with any progress we make here!

          Not everyone likes to pay with a credit card. Why not allow PayPal? Or partner w/ a company like PayGarden? Or accept Bitcoin?

            Please create the option to post directly to a Google+ collection. This feature is available in Friendsplus.me which is an independent developer so it can't be too hard to do for the happiness engineers at Buffer...

            • Re-Buffer All Old Posts (or Bulk Re-Buffer)

              I have a Twitter quotes account where my old tweets I reuse every 2-4 months. I have 500-600 tweets at a time that I use and it's a bit time confusing to have to manually rebuffer all my old tweets.

              It would be wonderful if there was a "re-buffer all" button or at least an option where you bulk re-buffer old posts.

              • Cheaper upgrade plan for a longer queue

                I"d like a longer queue, but $100 for the Awesome Plan is just too much.

                I understand that you offer a LOT for the $100, but I really only want the longer queue.

                I'd be willing to pay significantly less than $100 and get nothing more than a longer queue.

                  • Buffer for MS Edge

                    With Windows 10 Microsoft have introduced Edge as their new browser. At present Buffer isn't all that stable on Edge (save windows don't close, rebuffering causes Buffer to hang etc).
                    Would be great to have Buffer running on Edge to save me having to use two different browsers

                      • Integrate with Rebrandly

                        Would be nice if Buffer users could use links with custom domains in the messages they buffer on social. I know this is possible using Bit.ly but with Rebrandly it's much faster and simpler and you can use multiple domains. (full disclosure I'm the founder @Rebrandly)

                        • Global Calendar View

                          The calendar view is nice. We think it would be even better if we could see all our posts across all profiles in one view. This would make spotting overlaps or out-of-sync issues much easier.

                                On Twitter you can create a thread when posting tweets (by replying to yourself and taking your handle out of the tweet), essentially permanently linking tweets together. It would be so useful if we could do this on Buffer!

                                    • Scheduling your Replies in Buffer

                                      Need to have an option where a user can schedule his reply via buffer at the specific time without breaking the Twitter reply thread.

                                      This would be beneficial for brands ( and users alike) to reply in bulk and schedule according to consumer timezones for maximum effect.

                                      Please make this happen Team Buffer :)

                                      • Bulk Uploading Photos

                                        I'd love the ability to upload a batch of photos to share in my queue and then edit the copy later.

                                          Thanks so much for the amazing suggestions on this! Really sorry for my long delay in providing an update here. I love the idea of being able to share images really easily like this! Especially with images becoming increasingly important to social strategy, this makes total sense.

                                          While it’s not currently on our roadmap, we’re thinking a lot about how to make Buffer work much more smoothly with images, especially with our new Instagram integration. Hoping to have more updates for you all soon!

                                          I need a selector to choose the name of the album where my image is going to be uploaded. The same as hootsuite does.
