  1. Perhaps add Ello?

    It would be cool to have Ello among the list of social media providers your work with...

    • Diaspora support

      Dear Buffer, I love your app. I'm considering subscribing, but a big barrier to me is the lack of support for Diaspora. While Diaspora is small currently, its distributed network and open architecture mean I own my data, so I would like to point the world there rather than any of the proprietary services. I have no affilliation with them, just feel that they're important, particularly as a parallel/backup while they grow. Thanks, Ari

      • Multiple Buffer Accounts

        I would love a feature (it kills me to say take an existing idea) similar to Twitter where you can link multiple Buffer accounts (say, a personal account and a Business account) that you can flip between easily both within the app and within the extensions.

        • Export Analytics to PDF

          When managing multiple clients, providing analytics manually is a pain. I want one click. Sprout Social is not as good at scheduling but they are killing it with Analytics. I want to be able to see every option in the graph (not just 2 at a time) and I want to be able to export the PDF of the graph in 1 click. Ideally it would have my business branding as well and any other logo's I'd like to have on it (usually the client logo and my own).

          As it stands I will have to stop the business package…

            Thanks so much for the awesome suggestion here Adam! I think you’re definitely right that we’ve needed this for a while and we’re really keen to help make this process smoother. So sorry for the long delay, I know that must not feel great at all!

            We’re currently exploring ways to make this easy and are really eager to move quickly here!

            • Create iOS app for new Pablo tool!

              Pablo just launched today (or yesterday?) and is awesome! Buffer could add gas to the fire and make it even better if it was a fully functioning mobile app available on iOS, where users could create stunning images in under 30 seconds! Thanks Buffer!

              • 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.

                • Skip Tool

                  It would be really handy to have a skip tool - something that can be used to skip the next update without permanently deleting it from your schedule. It could be added into the stream and show up as a block like how posts do, but when the time comes, nothing is sent.

                  It would also be handy for skipping say the first update of the day if you often start posting really early (I run the social media for a 6:30am breakfast networking meeting and our first tweet is at 6:30am) but want to miss it for whatever reason.

                    • Ability to add Twitter lists as Buffer feeds

                      The Twitter timeline is essentially useless once you get past a certain number of follows or follow a lot of active people. most of the people I follow I don't really want to see everything (or anything!) they tweet, but the sad state of twitter is that "follow back" is about the only way to build a following (the absurdity of this is a story for another day).

                      The result of this "follow back" madness is that lists are the only way to make sense of Twitter. I'd love to be able to view my lists as feeds in Buffer…

                        Really appreciate this suggestion, Scott! Feels like this could be a really powerful way to make use of Twitter lists from within Buffer. I think that we’re currently exploring ways to make Feeds more useful and this sounds like a great one to think about!

                      • Select facebook album when uploading images

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

                          It would be fantastic if you could add support for yammer accounts.

                          • Customize the phrase "found at" after you hit the button "share image"

                            When you hit the button Share Image on a picture of a website, it always says "found at" followed by the link. It would be nice for those that have sites on other langs that we can customize this phrase so we can write anything on it. Like.. "Click here >" or simply, replace it.

                              Similar to the way Hootsuite has a CSV import option, I'd like a Buffer upload option.

                                  Would love to see Slack supported as an Account Type in Buffer so that when I am sharing articles and such that I can add them to a Slack Buffer and auto-post the articles based on a schedule I set.

                                      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!

                                    • API Video, Gif, Multi-image, Instagram Support

                                      The API is frekin awesome but its lacking of late. We need video support, why can't I just create a post and provide a url to the source video easy. gif is now available but not in API and where on earth is multi image support? Also you have Pinterest but no Instagram this has to be the most needed even hoostsuite has it.

                                        Most lengthier posts are fine for every connected account, except for Twitter....It would be wonderful if, once we started to go over the 140 character limitation, Buffer would recognize this, and incorporate Twitlonger somehow...
