    • Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn targeting (countries, languages etc.)

      Please implement the option to target posts sent to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Implement it like the Pinterest board selector where you'll be able to select the audience you want to reach e.g. specific countries, continents etc. and industries, functions etc.

      • Private Payment Options

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

        • Schedule with random posting time

          Schedule plan only accepts fixed time at the moment. It would be great to have the possibility to select a time range in which the posting time is selected random (for example post once a day every workday between 2 pm and 6 pm). This would make the posts look less like automatic posted.

          • Custom labeling

            Custom color coded labeling to categorize posts in the event you want x number of marketing related posts, x number of pictures, x number of quotes. You could label them with a color to visually see your whole week or month at a time to assess balance and how well you are following your social media plan.

                • Add a VK.COM

                  Dear All,
                  For Russian cusotmers it is really crucial to add VK.COM, as one of the biggest social networks here (it's more than 60% of the market), and I am sure, that it will help you to increase the brand awareness and loyal customer base in Russia. And it will help us (the marketers in Russia) to use it in the full scale !
                  Please support this and the blessing will cover Russia ;)))

                  • Schedule polls for twitter

                    Would like to be able to schedule polls for twitter. With the option of having a choice between 2,3, and 4 responses for the poll answers. This way accounts like @tweetedpolls are able to have them more spread out and not just tweet a bunch at one time each day manually

                      Thanks so much for the suggestion and votes on this one! I really enjoy using Twitter polls and would personally use this feature a LOT within Buffer. :)

                      At the moment, Twitter isn’t allowing third party tools like Buffer to access or post Polls. What we’ve noticed is that with new features like this, which might change quickly, Twitter prefers to wait until it’s in a more “stable” place before adding API support to it.

                      We’ll definitely keep a close eye on this and would be really excited to add polls support as soon as we can!

                      Cheers,
                      Patrik

                    • Add recurring scheduling

                      Many Twitter profiles know that it's OK to repeat same tweets when spaced right in time.

                      As such, I'd like to see a way to set a recurring scheduler that I'm able to set with:
                      * Specific spacing period (every X hours, days, months)
                      * Time of posting (e.g. at 9pm on due day.)
                      * or Timeframe of posting (like any random time from 7pm to 11pm)

                      This helps with marketing campaigns and sales. If you have a website, store or good tips, you'd want you new followed to know and followers to remember. People forget.

                      • New plan - between Awesome and Business plans.

                        My partner and I both have individual accounts, which cost us a combined total of $20 per month and lets us control 24 accounts.

                        We'd like to combine the accounts, but your cheapest business plan is $50, and only allows access to 25 account. So for more than double the price, we get one more account. This doesn't seem cost-effective.

                        I'd like a new plan that allows two team members and 25 accounts.

                          Hey folks!

                          Thanks for all the great feedback, we really appreciate it. I’m keen to share that reviewing our plans and pricing is definitely on the agenda.

                          I’ve also spotted that we have a few related suggestions about an ‘in between’ plan. Each of them is a little different for what they suggest to include in this new plan, but I was thinking it might be helpful to merge them all together under this suggestion to make it easier for people to keep the conversation all happening in one place. :)

                          Cheers!
                          Mike

                            Hey there! This is such a huge compliment that you’d be interested in that. At the moment, we’re pretty heads down with product and support and don’t have an affiliate program. We’ll for sure be in touch if this does become a possibility. Let me know if you have any questions at all!

                            Thanks!

                            Besides a LinkedIn company page it would be useful to be able to connect also a LinkedIn Group to a Buffer account.

                              It would be such a time-saver if buffer could pull all the images from a URL and let you pick one to post with your link.

                                I hold a buffer acct that has 50+ in our buffer. I would like to be able to search for an acct quickly and not scroll thru my entire buffer. If there was a search feature I could type the acct name in and find it.

                                  Hi everyone, thanks so much for the amazing suggestions and comments here! We’ve recently added a search option for profiles on all business plans and are working hard to add searching posts soon too. Thanks so much for your patience with us on this one! :)

                                • Customize posts by social media platform

                                  It would be great if, when we select our networks to post an item to,we could customize the messages for each platform right inside Buffer. I hate having to constrain what I post to Twitter limits.

                                    Hey folks,

                                    Thanks so much for your patience and apologies for taking so long to update things here!

                                    The TL;DR is that we are releasing this in the Buffer extension and hope to add it to the dashboard (and maybe mobile apps) soon too!

                                    I hope it’s ok for me to share some more context. We’re really excited to help you create customized updates on each network. We believe that high quality, personalized, authentic updates are the key to success of social and we want every single one of your updates to be awesome and engaging.

                                    Because this is quite a big change to our composer, it has required quite a lot of love and care (and engineering!).

                                    We want to do as much research and listening to feedback as possible and over the last 12 months we have been brainstorming, refining and testing a brand new composing experience in…

Or by adding some kind of simple tags…

                                    Alternatively, UTM parameters could dynamically pulled in using data from the posts. E.g. Different options to choose from. For example, I'd like to use the page name or title in the campaign field (so that would change for nearly every post) and I'd like to set…

                                          Hey everyone :)

                                          Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on this idea. I’m excited to let you all know that we have started building this and are making good progress. The back-end is built, next steps are hooking up the front end and requesting access from Facebook!

                                          I’ll be sure to keep you updated :)

                                          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.
