Connecting your social accounts to Buffer Publish

Connecting your social accounts is the first step to getting up and running with Buffer Publish. The number of social accounts you can connect will depend on the plan you're subscribed to. We currently support the following social accounts:

  • Facebook: Pages and Groups
  • Instagram: Business accounts
  • Twitter: Profiles
  • LinkedIn: Profiles and Pages
  • Pinterest: Profiles (only on our Pro and Business Plans)

Connecting your social accounts

  1. Log into the social account you'd like to connect. For example, if you're connecting your Twitter profile, start by logging into that profile at

  2. Click Manage Social Accounts at the bottom of the left hand sidebar.

  3. Click Add a New Social Account.

  4. Click on the type of social account you'd like to connect.

  5. The remaining steps are different for each type of social account. For Twitter profiles and Pinterest accounts, you should just need to authorize Buffer to access your account and you should be all set. For other social accounts, please refer to the guides linked below.

📖 Once you've connected a social account, we'd recommend hopping over to your posting schedule and setting up the times you'd like to post content. Learn more about the posting schedule here.
