Add a Buffer button to your website

I’m a huge fan of Buffer it allows you to connect and share content to multiple social media profiles (Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Google+ and Pinterest) It’s a great social media management tool. I use Buffer to post to my networks at set times, this means I can setup my posts and have them sent out when I’m not around. I use this a lot for sending out useful finds on Twitter and posting them when I’m working or in client meetings.

Today I’ve stumbled across their Buffer button, very similar to Facebook and Twitter buttons it allows you to place a little peice of code on a page and generate a button to let your users share the page with their butter account! 

To create a Buffer button go to https://buffer.com/extras/button

Edit the options as desired then copy and paste the generated code into the webpage where you want the Buffer button to appear.
Like everything with Buffer super easy to do and useful.

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.

Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
