We use Buffer for some of our scheduling, TweetDeck, and the Facebook in-app scheduler. I think native schedulers on Facebook and TweetDeck are easy-to-use and free. We haven’t landed on one we want to invest in outside of these. I think everyone is waiting for scheduling on Insta. I’m also not that happy with the analytics on Buffer. In social, after some tools research, I found some amazing tools for analytics, but they were bad for scheduling and then if they were good for scheduling their analytics were not as good. We’re still on the hunt for one tool that does both. Overall Buffer is free or if not, it’s cheap and great for a startup who wants an easy way to schedule across channels.

I would recommend Buffer. It’s worked for me in the past and I think they are one of the more ethical companies I have ever seen. Good product and good team.

I think it gets the job done. I’ve spent quite a bit of time and energy on Instagram. The API doesn’t let you post yet, so we just put a reminder in Buffer and post ourselves. I wouldn’t say I particularly like it, but it’s very solid and it gets the job done.
