More than ever before, community managers need to use multiple software tools to get their work done. Amongst these tools, Buffer & Mention have become incredibly popular recently, becoming must-have apps for community managers in the know. Proof of it can be found in mention being named by Social Media Examiner – the “world’s largest online social media magazine” – as the number one social media tool for Marketing pros:

And this growing use of multiple tools has created new challenges when it comes to connecting services. These challenges may explain the growing success of APIs & automation services like Zapier.

So to answer the frustrations of many community managers, Buffer & Mention are proud to announce a tight integration between their services, starting today.

From now on, you will be able to buffer your mentions directly within mention’s apps. This means that posting in multiple social networks & scheduling the mentions you share has never been so easy.

As Edouard de La Jonquière, our CEO says, “From day one, the integration with Buffer has been one of our most required integrations.” Buffer’s CEO, Joel Gascoigne, on the other hand remarks: “Almost every day, users come to us and ask for a way to see the stream inside Buffer. With this partnership, for the first time, we’re able to give our users a way to both monitor and publish with Buffer’s smarter sharing tools all in one place.

Here’s how to get started

#1: Connect your Buffer account to any alert

#2: Buffer is now available in the “React” menu of any Mention

#3: Add any mention to Buffer and react on your social networks

It’s that easy.
