What does Buffer do well?
The idea behind is quite good and when I first heard about it I thought it sounds useful and has the potential to save me a lot of time. If only it would work.
What does Buffer not do well?
The feeds I created stopped updating for no reason. Buffer disconnected from my social accounts and I had to reconnect it manually every time I wanted to use it which didn't always work from the first try. I had to always double check if something I wanted to share was really shared on my social accounts, because Buffer was not reliable. In general, it was a terrible experience.
What do you wish you had known about Buffer before using?
It is not a super complex tool, there are no "hard-to-find" features or tips. It is pretty straight forward and you know what to do as soon as you login for the first time.
Have you used a competitor to Buffer? If so, how does it compare?
I haven't used a competitor.
