      • Automatically add a space at the end of Instagram posts

        If your Instagram post ends with a hashtag, Instagram will automatically suggest new hashtags when you paste the text. For example, if I post:

        Make Mine Marvel! #marvel

        Then when I post it, Instagram pops up a window with:

        #marvel 12,486,468 posts
        #marvelvscapcon 30,126 posts
        #marvellegends 404,324 posts

        ...and so on. It takes an extra step to dismiss this hashtag menu before posting.

        Solution: Provide an option (or default behavior) to add a trailing space to Instagram posts, so the hashtag auto-completion menu won't come up. Auto-completion makes less sense when you're pre-writing your posts, and if you're posting to…

        • Add support for SeenThis http://seenthis.net/

          SeenThis is a new twitter-like with nice addition like formatted text, no 140 char limit, and a nice feature for citing quotes from articles. It would be nice to support it.

          • Allow me to drag images from DragonDrop into my buffer

            DragonDrop (https://shinyplasticbag.com/dragondrop/) is super handy for passing stuff around the OS, sometimes without having to save it.

            I'd love to be able to just drag an image from the web into DragonDrop and then drop it into the buffer webapp :)

            • Better integration between Daily, Pocket and Buffer

              Greater integration with Pocket and Daily would make it easier for users to go through Daily, pick out articles that look interesting, send it to Pocket, read the full article when in wifi range, and then send to Buffer.

              • In analytics: most popular posts list is longer than 10 OR export contains links if posts contained any

                As a media company we sometimes repost items. I love the analytics 'most popular post" function, especially because you can define the time range. But I would like to be able to see a list bigger than 10 popular items, or to have the entire export to include the links to the posts we shared (or the link to the article we shared)
                Hope this makes sense :)

                  • Fix referral page which seems to be broken - modal doesn't overlay.

                    When visiting https://buffer.com/referrals and pressed "Invite friends now" I expected the overlay to appear. It actually didn't. It either was partially visible in the bottom left of the screen or showed a message "Error message "Disallowed Key Characters.""

                      Snip.ly adds a call-to-action to every link you share and would be an awesome feature within Buffer.

                      • When entering a scheduled post it would be great to have the option to add other profiles, similar to using the main sharer.

                        Currently, say Profile A and Profile B are mirrored at different social sites, I have to enter the scheduled post for Profile A and then repeat for Profile B. It would be easier to pick the scheduled slot at Profile A and allow it to post at Profile B at the same time and date. I know I can use the main sharer, but if I want to use a scheduled time slot from Profile A, I have to manually pick the date & the time, and it eliminates the time saver factor.

                        • add social analytics for individuals type accounts (not having it was a big turn off for me).

                          add social analytics for individuals type accounts (not having it was a big turn off for me).
                          Analytics is way too important in this field and without it I wont proceed to even sign up for a account.

                          • Automatically resize pictures from a buffered page

                            When buffering a page, the chosen image for the post might require resizing (for example too large for the post). Currently, there is no resizing available and what you see in your buffer stream is not what you get on LinkedIn.

                            • multiplatform mention links

                              The main idea is to use links between platforms in order to enrich the messages.

                              Example 1:
                              Twitter: "Hi @google" <---this message in the other platforms could be:
                              "Hi <a href='http://twitter.com/google'>A Googler</a>

                              Example2:
                              Google+: "Hi +Mashable" <-------- This message in other platforms clold be:

                              "Hi <a href='http://plus.google.com/+Mashable'>Mashable</a>"

                              • Internal Labelling

                                Flag posts to other admins as eg "do not move", "please edit", "check hashtag" perhaps via colour-coded labels (like the blue one that exists for pinned posts) we need to be able to lock a post to show it as immovable and only the person who created it should be able to move it/change the time. Also tagging posts internally to create groups that you can later search for in analytics for better campaign tracking. Eg "Oscars16" to help you collate that info.

                                • Enhance the Buffer Extension in Feedly

                                  When I Buffer something through Feedly, there are some features missing that I get when Buffering from Safari desktop or the Buffer mobile app. Specifically, pictures don't get included in twitter feeds and no option to add any FaceBook comments for sharing to that platform. Since pictures are so important to get impressions, having the twitter image would be very helpful. And I think adding comments to FaceBook helps get it shown to more people (guessing that's why you added the capability).

                                  • I need an extension made for MX5 Maxthon browser pretty please!

                                    I have been using maxthon for years and it is great but there is no extension for buffer. I know plenty of people who would benefit from it. Is anyone willing to code this extension and upload it to the maxthon extension center?

                                    • Add Tweetbot integration

                                      I am tweeting for global people, not only from my own country, so I would like to schedule the tweets or RTs from the Tweetbot app (in my case, for iPad), which is much more convenient for me than the Twitter app. Anything that I share directly from the browser I can still do it with Buffer, but thanks to Tweetbot I increased dramatically my Twitter traffic in just two weeks. It’s more comfortable. And I want to use Buffer with it as well.

                                      • Link Shortening in Editor

                                        Allow for link shortening in edit mode after initial post has been made and is in queue would be so helpful. I have to make several updates for work at once and I forgot a link on a few but I would have to go back and recreate the post and requeue it for the link to shorten.
