Buffer Now Supports Instagram (As Well As It Can Given Instagram’s Restrictions)

Social media scheduling site Buffer now supports Instagram. Sort of. “As you may know, Instagram does not allow outside apps to post directly to Instagram. With Buffer’s Instagram support, you can create an Instagram reminder in the web or mobile app, and when it’s time to post, Buffer will send a notification to your phone that loads your photo into Instagram with your prewritten caption saved to your phone’s clipboard, ready to be pasted.”

Buffer Updates Pablo

Buffer has updated its Pablo image creation tool. “We’ve expanded Pablo’s functionality to work with all social media networks – on top of Twitter, you can now create images with the perfect size and format for Facebook, Instagram, and even Pinterest. You can create the visuals, share them across all platforms and then analyze them with Buffer’s analytics to know how well they’re performing.”

Buffer Launches Buffer for Video

Buffer has launched Buffer for Video. “To get started uploading videos through Buffer, select a video file from your computer—either an mp4, mov, or avi file of up to 1 gigabyte in size. Drop your video into the Buffer composer window or choose the file you’d like to upload, and Buffer will do the rest!” I have used Buffer for both ResearchBuzz and my Real Job for quite a while now, and could not recommend it more. It’s a great product and, to me, well worth the $102 a year that a paid plan costs if you pay for a year’s worth up front. I don’t get a complimentary account; I’m a paying customer. I just really dig them.
