Last October I posted about Buffer, a handy tool for collecting things you want share with your Twitter followers and Facebook friends and then publish them according to a preset schedule.

This morning, the folks at Buffer announced they now also support LinkedIn – here is the link to their blog post.

Adding LinkedIn follows the same simple procedure as before. Starting from your dashboard (the website, not the toolbar) you simply click on the “+Add” button which will bring up this dialog (click on the image to see a larger version):

LinkedIn and Buffer App

Click on the “Connect LinkedIn” button an you will see the familiar message asking you to grant permission for Buffer to access your LinkedIn account. Grant permission and you are done.

As part of the change, Buffer also made some changes to the number of accounts you can have in each of their plans:

  • The free plan now allows you to connect 3 accounts (Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn).
  • Their Pro plan gives you the ability to connect up to 6 different Social Accounts.

If you haven’t had a chance to try Buffer, I highly recommend that you do. If you use this link to sign up – http://bufferapp.com/r/d1015, both you and I will get space for an extra post in our buffers.
