You might even use Feedly to scan posts, find interesting ones, and share them with your Twitter, Facebook, and Linkedin followers.You find that you want to share stuff with your friends and followers, but you don’t want to overwhelm them with multiple posts all at the same time. You also want to share when they are actually online to see and react to the stuff you send.

    I really appreciated this, Steve. I was using Buffer, but was frustrated by only having a couple of accounts for free. I may have to consider upgrading.
