Knowledge base: Buffer integration

Buffer integration

You can use our Buffer integration to automatically convert every link you queue into Buffer to your very own custom Backly link.

You only have to set this up once and queue your posts into Buffer as you would normally.

To get started head over to your Backly dashboard and click the “Integrations” link in the left menu.

Then click the “Connect” button to authorize us to connect to your Buffer account.


We’ll automatically pull in any of your profiles from Buffer.

You can now choose which message you want to set as your default for each profile. This will be the message that automatically gets attached to each link you queue up in Buffer to that particular social profile (or page).


Once you’re happy with your message just click the “Enable” button to convert all your currently queued links into your own Backly links, plus any future posts you queue up.

You can repeat this process for each profile you have, ensuring the message is tailored for your particular audience.


  • It can take up to 5 minutes for us to go through your queue. Once it’s done, all your queued links in Buffer should now be Backly links with your default message attached.
  • Some links are incompatible with Backly, we check any links in your Buffer queue before converting them and if they won’t work with us we simply leave them unchanged.
  • If you Buffer a Backly link we won’t Backlify it again.

If you have any more questions about this integration or would like to see more features just let us know.
