“Buffer + Short.cm” Zap

Buffer is a smart tool, which helps to schedule social media posts for further publishing. Buffer allows to send posts on social networks: Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, and Pinterest.

"Short.cm + Buffer" Zap automates the publishing process. After a new short link is created, a post with a link title, description, and web page preview is published to chosen social channels. You can send a short link to eight social networks at once.
