Buffer is a software application designed to manage social networks, by providing the means for a user to schedule posts to Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin. In December 2012, TechCrunch reported the application had over 400,000 users.[1] As of September 19, 2013, according to Co-founder Leo Widrich, Buffer has reached 1 million registered users.[2]

The application was designed by a group of European expats in San Francisco, though the developers temporarily relocated to Hong Kong due to US immigration laws.[3]
