3 Awesome Tools to Autofeed Content to Social Media

Twitterfeed recently announced that they would be closing their doors as of October 31, 2016.

If you’re not familiar with Twitterfeed, it is a utility (or tool) used to curate content via RSS feed to social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and App.net).

When I heard the announcement, I was surprised but not too worried because I am already using three (3) other tools to help me do the same job that Twitterfeed was.

3 Awesome Tools to Autofeed Content to Social Media

You knew I couldn’t let you go with just “Twitterfeed closing”, right? I’m here to provide a few awesome alternatives to Twitterfeed!

Dlvr.it

I was introduced to Dlvr.it by one of my techy blogging friends and haven’t turned back since. I love this tool! They have a Free and a Premium service. Both of which I have used and highly recommend.

Dlvr.it is easy to configure! Check out the Tutorial to see just how simple it is! I think even a Caveman could do it. 😉

I’ve been using Dlvr.it for over a year now and really love how it works.

Did I mention there is a Chrome Extension for easy sharing of content to your Dlvr.it account? Let me not forget this awesome Stats or Analytical Results!

But please, don’t take it from me. Head on over to Dlvr.it, Sign Up for Free, and give it a test drive!

Buffer

Buffer is another great tool that most of you are probably familiar with. Like Dlvr.it, there is a Free Plan, Premium Plan, and Business Plan. I have used both Free and Premium and do recommend Buffer.

The only issue I ever had with Buffer is that one certain social media networks and specific posts, it would post the image and not the link. I think my good friend, Adrian Jock, pointed out that issue out to me over a year or so ago. I still don’t know what was causing the issue other than the fact I was scheduling via my smartphone.

However, like Dlvr.it, you can add RSS feeds and share posts to it directly via a Chrome Extension.

I believe Buffer may be a more loved tool than Hootsuite, but I could be wrong. I hear good things about both tools and use them myself.

Hootsuite

Lastly, Hootsuite is another great tool for sharing, scheduling, and auto-sharing RSS feeds. A Free or Premium plan is available depending on your needs. I found the Premium Plan had awesome filler content that you could schedule. This is good if you want to increase your tweet count, as well as, share other relevant content.

3 Awesome Tools to Autofeed Content to Social Media

Like Dlvr.it and Buffer, there is a Chrome Extension called Hootlet which makes it easy to share other content to your Hootsuite social media networks for immediate share or scheduling.

There are others

Don’t get me wrong, there are a few other awesome tools out there that do about the same or more. However, I only like to recommend products that I have used or am currently using. What good would it do to recommend a product that I’ve never tried?

Yeah, that could be a reputation breaker, right?

So, there you have it. Twitterfeed will disappear with the ghosts and goblins on October 31, 2016. Will you keep its doors closed for eternity? Or will it be reincarnated as some massive Twitterfeed on roids?

Whatever happens, at least you still have a few more days to test drive some new scheduling tools and get your accounts set up.

What do you think?

Are you a Twitterfeed user? If so, how did you take the news? Were you already using other tools or are you anxiously searching for new ones? I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Hi Bren,

    What a coincidence! I am currently doing a similar post on social media marketing tools and in the meantime, I got your blog link through Twitter. I am using Buffer for a long time and TweetDeck also. Dlvr.It is my another favorite tool to automatically share contents on social media. You added all my favorites to this list.

    Thanks for writing about these tools. It was an interesting reading.

    Best wishes,
    Manoj

  2. Hi Bren,

    Thanks for the great post, but is there any free tool to automate social media posting? As most of the apps and software are paid that can add much cost to a beginner. Let me know if there is a free option for this purpose.

  3. Some useful information, here. I’ve never heard of Dlvr.it., but will be looking into it momentarily. Thanks for providing!

  4. Hi Bren, I ‘m just seeing this post now 😦 From Twitter of course….I didn’t know Twitterfeed shut down but I haven’t used it in years. I’m still using the Buffer but am looking into some new ones for 2017. Hootsuite always gets great reviews but I never felt comfortable using it over the years. I have from time to time but just not with great ease like with the Buffer.

    1. Hi Lisa. Oh no, are you not receiving my email notifications? I use dlvr.it sparingly now. It’s not as user friendly as Buffer and Hootsuite. I use both of those daily. I split up my accounts on each and use them for my sharing and connecting. I have a love-hate relationship with Hootsuite. Simply because the mobile app isn’t as good as the web. If you pay for premium Hootsuite, not all the features are available on mobile either. I’m still looking for the ultimate app that can do all I want but until then, I’ll stick with these. Like you, I’m always looking for apps that can streamline my social networking.

      Have a great weekend!

  6. Great post Bren!

    I use all three of these…Hootsuite and Dlvr.it for my blog and Buffer for when I share posts on my church’s social media. I still like Hootsuite over Buffer though because of the featured content and unlimited RSS feeds – in case anyone still uses that.

    Thanks for sharing B. Hope you’re having a great day hun!

    1. Hey Cori,

      Thank you. I know you are a huge Hootsuite user. Are you using the premium Hootsuite? I tried it but the lack of mobile functionality is lacking. Buffer seems to have more mobile features which is a must for me. I continue to use Bloglovin’ for my reader. I’ve tried many others but keep going back. Gluten for punishment maybe? 🙂

      Happy Monday gf! Thank you for sharing with us!

  7. Hey Bren,

    I never was a Twitterfeed user so I’m happy that I don’t have all my info on that platform Phew….

    However, I recently am using PostPlanner which is not free but pretty cheap. It lets me not only share, but I can also get creative with it because it is connected to Canva too. I can post a tweet and use an image at the same time. Maybe it is a new toy for me now, but I’m happy with it.

    -Donna

    P.S. Gotta thank Amar for that wonderful comment he added.

    1. Hi Donna,

      I tried out Post Planner for awhile, however, canceled because I just couldn’t justify me paying for it. I do many people who adore Post Planner though. Maybe someday when I’m rich, I’ll go back. 🙂

      I’ve been hearing some talk about Canva lately so I’ve been trying to edge away from it. I’m not sure what to believe anymore and need to find hard facts before going further with it. Thankfully, there are always alternatives to most of the social tools we are using. I find that we all have our favs and our not so favs.

      Good luck with Post Planner. I noticed you have been more active with images and Instagram. Rock on girly!

  8. Hey Bren,

    I have never heard of Dlvr.It. It’s good to know that the tool can work fine for the social media platforms.

    I have used Buffer and always try to schedule my tweets. Even HootSuite is great.
    Thanks for the list.

    1. Hi Ravi,

      What? I taught you something new for a change? I love it! haha I wish I could remember who told me about Dlvr.it because I really need to go back and thank them for showing me such a valuable tool.

      Buffer and Hootsuite are pretty popular, even the Free version. I’m all about Free so by combining these three platforms, I have the whole kit and kaboodle!

      I appreciate you stopping by and sharing with us. Hope you’re enjoying your week!

  9. Hey Bren,

    Buffer began as a Twitter scheduling app, so for the first phase. It is mainly for crafting better tweets, getting more followers, and using Twitter for SEO.

    Guest blogging was another important factor driving Buffer’s early growth. But for Buffer, guest blogging was more about reaching a larger audience than looking for back-links. Relationships are hard to track, but are actually the most valuable things that we gain from guest posting.

    Those new relationships gave Buffer the opportunity to grow their community to include the friends and followers of major social media influencers.

    Hootsuite is the most widely used platform for managing social media. Hootsuite is competing in a marketplace for social media dashboard tools or platforms, where marketers are focused on social media management for their clients web engagement activities. Hootsuite’s best known competitors include Spredfast and Sprout Social. Eventually, thanks for sharing your worthy thought with us.

    With best wishes,

    Amar kumar

    1. Hi Amar,

      Wow! This is definitely valuable information you’re adding to the discussion. Thank you so much! I can understand Hootsuite being one of the “favs” out there. I, personally, wish there were a few more cosmetic options available. I really love the function of Tweetdeck and the appearance of it.

      You’ve mentioned a few other tools that I haven’t used before so I may have to investigate further. I love finding awesome resources to help me along with my blogging, business, full-time job and family priorities. Just never seems to be enough hours in a day. 🙂

      Thanks again for adding to the conversation, Amar. Great to see you here!

  10. Hi, Bren. Aww, that’s sad to hear. It’s okay though because as you said there are other tools.

    I use Hootsuite and Buffer, but I also use an app called HiPlay which works in unison with Buffer.

    It’s a good way to keep evergreen content buffered up to your social networks.

    I also use Viral Content Buzz and CoPromote.

    1. Hi Sara,

      I haven’t heard of HiPlay so I better check that one out. I’ve heard many good things about CoPromote, yet I haven’t jumped at it yet. Any tools that help push content out there with very little to no effort is definitely a plus for me.

      Great to see you here! Have a fabulous week ahead!

  11. Hello, Brenda!

    Buffer is my go to tool for pushing it scheduled posts to my major social accounts.

    Despite of Buffer, I also use Klout to schedule some good posts I find and often hop on them to read in full.

    HootSuite is a little puzzling for managing one accounts but I use it on work only.

    dlvr.it is something I gotta know more about — seems like it would be an interesting tool like Buffer and Klout for me to get a grip on. 🙂

    Thanks! And see me often!

    ~ Adeel

    1. Hi Adeel,

      It’s great to see you here! I’ve never used Klout to schedule. Do you find it as easy as using Buffer? I might have to take a peek at that. Hootsuite can be a bit puzzling for some. I use it for 3 accounts currently, 4 on Buffer, and 3 more on Dlvr.it. Can’t beat it! I hope you do decide to check out Dlvr.it. I know it’s not for everyone but add the Chrome extension in there and ya can’t go wrong.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing with us! Have a great one!

  12. Hi Bren,

    Sweet tools 😉 I am a Hootsuite user and yep, a Hootlet guy on Chrome. So easy to drip stuff to my Facebook, Twitter and G Plus accounts with the auto sked feature. Former Hootsuite Pro user here but I was so busy keeping up with blog commenting and guest posting so I cancelled and focused on just sharing to those 3 networks. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. Hey Ryan,

      Oh yes, I use Hootsuite and Hootlet. Isn’t Hootlet just a nifty extension tool? I don’t blame you on narrowing your social outlets. I’ve done the same and switch them up every time I see stats changing on one or the other. You can’t go wrong with Hootsuite or Buffer.

      Great to see you popping on my site from Paradise. Keep it sunny!

  13. Hi Bren! I’m a big fan of Buffer, I use it for Twitter and my Facebook page and groups and it has some great features. I wasn’t aware of dkvr.it so I will certainly give it a look over. Thank you for the heads up.

    1. Hey Corinne! Oh yes, glad to hear you love Buffer! I’m so cheap that I just can’t pay premium so I use all the freebies I can get! Dlvr.it is pretty functional so if you try it, I hope you like it!

      B

  14. Hi Bren! Thank you for this information as I knew Twitterfeed was closing but didn’t know about the alternatives. Thanks for making my life easier.

    1. Hi Sue,

      Oh yes, I love Twitterfeed and am sorry to see them close their doors. However, there are other alternatives out there that you may even like better. I hope you enjoy the choices.

      Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi Roy,

      I’m glad I could introduce you to something new! I really like the functionality of Dlvr.it and highly recommend it. If you so chose to try it out, I would love your thoughts!

      B

  15. Hi Bren!

    Actually I was not using Twitterfeed but honetly I was not using any plugin to do this job. And some times I just do it manually, but I think some of these tools you have mentioned here must be tried.

    I think I will start with dlvr.it and make things easy for my self 🙂

    Thank you for sharing
    Have a good day
    Usman

    1. Hi Usman! Welcome to my site!

      I know many of us are business nowadays and by automating some of our tasks, it can allow us more time to focus on content and other priorities. You can’t go wrong with any of the three (3) applications I mentioned above. They all have a little uniqueness to them, that is why I can’t settle on just one.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. Have a great day!

      Bren

  16. Hi Bren! Really grateful you’ve included Buffer here! 🙂 Huge apologies we didn’t give you the best experience when posting from your phone! Sounds like we might have had a bug there, would be curious to hear if it’s still an issue & dig into it for you. If you’re up for emailing us, we’d love to help out at hello@buffer.com. 🙂

    1. Hi Bonnie!

      I really appreciate you stopping by to comment, as well as, reaching out to me via Twitter! I couldn’t leave Buffer out. I’ve been using Buffer for about 3 years now and love it. I will try scheduling a few more post to Facebook via my Buffer android app and see if I still get the error. I’ll be in touch shortly.

      Thank you and Have a Great Friday!

      Bren
