How is SocialBee different from Buffer?
See how SocialBee can save you time over Buffer 💪
Buffer makes you work for them – constantly having to add new posts 🙁
While SocialBee works for you – just set it and forget it 🙂
SocialBee provides you with tools that are perfect for scheduling content that you can use again and again. This way we can save you a few hours each week to let you focus on your business.
Plus, we have the GROW and ENGAGE features, that Buffer is missing altogether.
That being said, we’re pretty awesome (granted, we might be a bit biased), here’s why:
Evergreen Posting – Content Reposting/Recycling
With Buffer, you can schedule each post only once. If you want to repost something, at the end of your queue, you’ll have to go through a series of steps to reschedule that particular post.
With SocialBee, however, this process can be done automatically when you select Evergreen Posting in your categories. Once your queue runs dry, your content will be recycled and posted again. This is perfect for content that is not time sensitive. And speaking of categories:
Content Categories (Aka Content Library)
You’ll have different needs for different types of content. With Buffer, you cannot categorize your content according to your needs. Ah, but you can do so with SocialBee.
Using our category system, you’ll be able to choose which posts you only share once and which ones you want to share over and over again (hint, it’s the good ones, you’ll have to share more).
Powerful RSS and Pocket Configuration
Both Buffer and SocialBee allow you to import RSS feeds, add a Pocket feed or CSV Files to fill up your queue faster.
However, with Buffer Feedly requires you to have a pro account to upload RSS Feeds.
With SocialBee you can add RSS feeds directly into your categories, Import links or CSV files, use your Pocket account to share different tags to multiple content categories.
Extra – did I tell you about our very own Social Media Team?
Beside our powerful Social Media Management Platform, we have a Team of Social Media Specialists – or Social Media Bees, as we like to call them – that provide a suite of Concierge Services which will help you with Social Media Posting, Growth, and Engagement.

So Should I use Buffer or SocialBee?
We’d love it if you used SocialBee, but we’ll help you make the decision yourself:
Buffer might be right for you if
- You want to manually create each and every post that goes out
- You want a free account with limited features
- You only want to use it for scheduling your content.
SocialBee might be right for you if
- You want to automate your posts more and save time to deal with the really important stuff
- Want to grow your Twitter account and engage with your new followers to turn them into leads and then into customers
- You want to be able to categorize and recycle your content
Having the content categories, and being able to recycle content makes it possible to post more often, even if you don’t have a VA or you’re not working on it full time.Zachary Kyra-Derksen
