Buffer Integrations

  • Buffer new items in an RSS feed

    It doesn't matter if it's your company blog, personal blog, a popular news site or some special, private RSS feed, with Zapier you can have all new RSS items automatically sent to Buffer!

    How It Works

    • A new item is posted to an RSS feed
    • Zapier adds the new item to your Buffer queue for you

    What You Need

    • RSS feed
    • Buffer account
  • Buffer your Instagram photos

    Want to share your Instagram photos on different social networks like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or Google+? Then use this integration to post new Instagram photos into Buffer so that they automatically be shared at a later time—or instantly.

    How It Works

    1. Post a photo to Instagram
    2. Zapier adds that photo to your Buffer queue or shares it instantly

    Note: You'll need a Zapier integration for each Buffer profile you want to share with (i.e. one for Twitter, one for Google+, etc.)

    What You Need

    • Instagram account
    • Buffer account
  • Buffer your WordPress posts

    Whenever you publish a post on your WordPress site, there are several social networks you want to update. This Zapier integration automatically adds those new WordPress posts to Buffer, making it easy to share them on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+.

    How It Works

    1. Publish a new post on your WordPress site
    2. Zapier adds that post to one of your Buffer profiles

    Note: You'll need a Zapier integration for each Buffer profile you want to post to (i.e. one for Facebook, one for Twitter, etc.)

    What You Need

    • WordPress blog
    • Buffer account
  • Add new Facebook Pages posts to a Buffer queue

    If you need to distribute posts on your organisations Facebook Pages account to other social media, use Zapier to automatically capture that content and add it to a Buffer queue. This integration makes it easy to capture and post Facebook Pages content without copying and pasting from Facebook Pages to elsewhere. Once you set up this Facebook Pages to Buffer integration, new posts to your Facebook Pages account from that point forward are individually added as new items in a Buffer queue.

    How It Works

    1. A new Facebook Pages post is created
    2. Zapier adds the content as a new item in a Buffer queue

    1. Get a new follower on your Twitter account
    2. Zapier adds thank you message to your Buffer account

    What You Need

    • A Twitter account
    • A Buffer account
  • Add New Feedly Article From a Category to Buffer Queue

    Feedly is a great weapon in the world of curating content, and coupled with Buffer, you can share that content at a pace that's right for your audience. Add Zapier to the mix and automate the most tedious part of the process, leaving you to just curate the content and not worry about replicating it for sharing.

    How it works

    • A Feedly pro account
    • A Buffer account
    • A Zapier account

The next time you favorite an article, it'll not only save it as normal in your Pocket account but it'll add it to the Buffer profile of your choice, too.
