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!
Wow, it has been awesome to see all the support for this feature. Thanks so much.
I’m keen to share an update :)
We are currently working on a new team collaboration tool for Buffer for Business, which will include the ability to create Draft posts. We’re really pumped to make collaborating on posts with your team a whole lot easier.
If you’d like to keep track of how it’s shaping up, feel free to follow it out on our Transparent Roadmap: https://trello.com/c/4hkUzyAJ/30-draft-posts ((it’s a public Trello board)
Thanks for all your input and patience!
A brief update on tagging coming your way. :)
We’ve run into a couple of technical hurdles, but have started testing Facebook page-to-page tagging in the Buffer Extension. Right now it is limited to alpha testing, so we haven’t opened it up yet as a public beta just yet.
For more details, head on over to the card on our Public Roadmap: https://trello.com/c/kFiNex0J/24-mentions-for-facebook-pages
We’re bundling this new feature with some other upgrades to the dashboard composer, which we expect will be rolling out closer to the end of Q2 / start of Q3. Sorry about the vagueness, it is a bit of a moving target right now.
Thanks for your stellar patience. :)
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 :)
