@EXDE601E Sorry George - wrong link! Hold on for correct link! -BMR— Buffer (@buffer) July 26, 2013
Slowly but surely, Buffer has become a very useful tool for sharing links from all over the web. It’s not necessarily due to a better feature set – after all, they only added custom scheduling a couple of weeks ago – but rather to the large number of services they support: you can post to the major social networks (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and now Google+ also) and from a wide range of sources: from the web through browser extensions, from mobile apps like Newsify, Reeder and Feedly and programmatically through ifttt. As TweetDeck – unsurprisingly – stopped supporting Facebook after being acquired by Twitter, Buffer remained the best solution for scheduled posting on Facebook.
Recently though I ran into a small problem: the browser bookmarklet I used for adding links to Buffer stopped working. I don’t want to add another extension because Chrome uses up enough memory as it is. I tried to reinstall the bookmarklet, but unfortunately it isn’t listed on the page of supported tools anymore. After a while I even contacted their support on Twitter, with little success. So finally I decided to try to build my own version, however simple.
