BufferAdd to Buffer

If you use Buffer to share content on all your social networks, you can make it even easier when you use this Tumblr to Buffer automation. Set it up, and every time a new post is published by one of the Tumblr blogs you follow, Zapier will add the post to your Buffer queue. Follow just the sites you want to share, and then this integration will let you automatically share all of their posts via Buffer.

How It Works

  1. New post is published in your Tumblr Dashboard
  2. Zapier adds post to your Buffer queue
