Bugs fixed


It’s February. 2017. No, you’re not alone. It’s amazing how fast this year is moving. But with the holidays behind us, our team is kicking off 2017 with a bunch of great new improvements and updates just for you.

Let’s dig in :-)

Facebook comments rolled out to all Respond 2

After an extensive private beta, we’re thrilled to be rolling out Facebook comments to all Respond 2 customers. You can enable comments on any page already connected, or simply connect a new page to get started:


Pro Tip: You can even respond to comments on Facebook ads. Pretty sweet.

New Slack integration

We’ve completely overhauled our Slack integration for Respond 2. Your team can now stay in sync with notifications for Twitter and Facebook.


Ninja Pro Tip: @mention teammates in Slack from a Respond note like this: <@ivana>

Richer reports now available

We doubled down on reports this month. Facebook data is now deeply integrated into our Overview and Team reports. And of course you can export it all too.


We even rolled out one-click drill-downs so you can answer questions like “which conversations were tagged for follow-up this week?” Set a date range and click on a tag. Voila:


Inbox filters help streamline your view

Viewing only Twitter direct messages or just Facebook comments got a whole lot easier with our new inbox filters. Now you can prioritize your responses and find what you’re looking for faster:

Pay Analysis Update: Examining Equal Pay at Buffer in 2020

Editor’s Note: Thanks for checking out this post! We’ve released our updated 2021 pay analysis here. You can’t improve something if you don’t know that it needs to be improved. That was very true for us four years ago when we first started looking into equal pay at Buffer. We have long used a salary formula to determine all of our salaries – the same role in the same part of the world receives the same salary. That m

Buffer Shareholder Update: COVID-19 Impact and Approach

Ever since the world got turned upside down by COVID-19, it’s been “business as unusual” for everyone – Buffer included. I sent this update out to Buffer’s investors one week ago. I hesitated on whether to share it more widely, as I know a lot of companies have been impacted more severely in these times. That said, I believe it makes sense to lean into our company value of transparency, since there may be some companies this could help, and it shows Buffer customers that we will be around beyon
