We created a Buffer Integration on our platform, so that you can bee (🐝) able to also publish on platforms like Instagram and Google+, which we don’t support on their own at the moment. However, this integration can also be useful if you don’t have complete access to a social profile, regardless if it’s Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn, but you do have access to a Buffer profile that has the profiles connected to it.
To connect a profile through Buffer, you first need to have that social profile connected on Buffer. Then, you need to go to your Account drop-down menu and select Profiles. (You can do this whenever you want to connect a new social profile). Once you’ve accessed your Profiles page, you will be able to see any connected profiles (if you have any).
Even though you can connect any supported social profile through Buffer, we recommend connecting your Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook profiles directly to SocialBee. By eliminating third parties, there are fewer risks of having failed posts.
If for any reason (like needing Buffer's analytics or specific Buffer posting) you want to make any of your profiles post though Buffer, follow these next steps:
Go to Profiles and select the gear icon on the social profile for which you want to change the posting provider.
Then make sure you have your Buffer account connected in Posting Setup.
Authorize SocialBee's access to your Buffer account.
Select the right social profile from your Buffer account.
You can go back to Profiles to double check that the setup has been completed.
Now all content and posting settings will still be in SocialBee, but the posting itself will be done through your Buffer account.
