Instagram, the major photo sharing giant with about 500 million monthly active users is a very popular application among the internet users. Instagram’s android or ios application as of now doesn’t have any features of scheduling the posts for a particular time. But with the use of the amazing application named buffer, you can be able to do that scheduling for your Instagram posts.
Buffer is a platform which allows you to sharing posts of text, audio, video or any links right from one place to many of your social networking platforms and you can even schedule those posts for a later time.
When you log into your buffer dashboard, you have to connect your various social networking accounts in order to share any post into that account. And recently it added sharing posts to your Instagram account as well. After you connect your Instagram account, you will have to give access to your account to buffer. To do that, you just have to click on Authorize.
After that you will have to open the buffer application in your android or ios device, as it can only be done from the mobile application. Open your buffer application and login with your details to see all your connected social networking accounts.
Now the one thing that you should remember here is that buffer cannot actually post on your behalf, instead it just reminds of the scheduled post at the time that you have set it remind and will allow you post you then. You do this either from the mobile app or the buffer in the desktop browser.
So it may not actually give you the benefit of posting the photo directly to your account, but you can actually stop worrying about the post that has to be done at time as it will remind you in time. And it allows you compose Instagram posts from your desktop browser as well. So, here comes the advantage that we can actually post now from the desktop.
So enjoy posting in Instagram by scheduling your posts with buffer.
