[Publish] Connecting your social accounts

You can no longer connect personal Facebook Profiles to Buffer Publish, and from July 26, 2018, you will no longer be able to post to Facebook Profiles that were previously connected. You will still be able to connect and manage Facebook Pages. Learn more here.


To get started with Buffer, you'll need to connect at least one social account. You can currently connect the following types of social accounts to Buffer:

  • Twitter: Profiles
  • Facebook: Pages and Groups
  • LinkedIn: Profiles and Pages
  • Google+: Profiles and Pages
  • Pinterest: Boards (on the Pro and Business Plans)
  • Instagram: Profiles

The number of social accounts you can connect to Buffer will depend on which plan you're subscribed to. Feel free to  hop over here to check out our plans and pricing.

Click on the type of social account you'd like to connect to Buffer. With most social networks, if you’re already logged into that specific social account, you'll only need to authorize Buffer to use your account. If you’re not already logged in, you'll need to enter your login details.
