3. Buffering Images
Now this is obviously my absolute favorite features of Buffer. As you may know in order to have your images appear full size on social networks you usually need to save the image and then upload them directly. You can Buffer images so when you share them on Facebook and Twitter they will appear as full size images!
All you need to do is right click the image and choose Buffer This Image.
As you can see, when the image is shared it appears full size for all of your followers to enjoy!
So after you create an image with Share As Image just go to the image page and Buffer the image!
Buffer provides analytics for each page and profile you connect. Different types of data will be displayed depending on which network you are looking at.
