How can we improve Buffer?

Get suggestions based on keywords

Be able to get suggestions to posts based on specific keywords. e.g. if my app is about making animated Gifs, I'd like to see articles with that keyword to share... not just a general topic.

        Given how old this request is, I'm not hopeful it will be implemented, but I agree that current content suggestions based on just the feeds (with zero filtering, keywords) is useless. Seems like a simple add-on to include keywords to help filter the content suggestions, but if course that's easy for me to say :)

        DrumUp.io has something like this and I would consider buying the Agency upgrade if Buffer had it too. I'm currently using it there and it's great to just type in keywords and share content that matches. I've had a large increase in followers since I've started. It's much easier/better than adding specific "feeds" to my account.

        I'm glad this has been suggested. I would like to see this as I find the suggestions do not match the content of my media.

        Voted. I'm a confectioner/chocolate maker. All the suggestions are for business and technology. How is that a suggestion? ;)

        The suggestions are useless the way they are now. Would be great to get suggestions based on keywords you can set yourself. Even better would be the ability to use Twitter searches so you can build search queries yourself and use the results to schedule new posts.

        Related: if you were able to discern trending topics from within the network of people I follow, that would be huge. Sprout does something similar and it was the only reason I even considered them.

        Something I have been wanting from @buffer eagerly. :):) Hope they are in process to make it happen.

        This is a really great idea, thanks so much for suggesting it! I can see how useful it would be to have the ability to tailor suggestions a bit more personally. This is something that we're thinking a lot about right now as we work on improving content suggestions!
