I'm a tech geek. I've been interested in technology and tools since my first Atari system more than a few years ago. My interests are ever evolving and I'm always on the hunt for cool new technology, particularly in the talent and recruiting space. The tools section in Amplify Talent will highlight various recruiting and social media tools I use or am interested in exploring. The inaugural AT Tools post highlights one of my favorites - BufferApp.
Love BufferApp! This is a platform that allows you to schedule and post messages to a variety of platforms including Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. It integrates to bit.ly so you can can track click thrus on all your posts. You set the post frequency - days, hours, patterns. They have an iOS app which makes it easy to manage on the fly. The also have extensions for Chrome and Firefox to make it super simple to capture whatever content you'd like to share. For recruiters and social media pros with busy schedules (sound familiar?), it's truly great. Bonus? The founder and Co-Founder, Joel & Leo, are very responsive and regularly iterate and add enhancements based on user feedback.
