I've been paying for Buffer for 2 years now. I have the business plan and can connect 25 accounts. I've loved all the new features and how the company keeps up with the constantly changing social media APIs. I am rating it a 4 because I have to come in here and delete and reinstall the app since it's been bugging on me. (What customer service suggested) We pay for Buffer to save time. Debugging should be done at the customer service level, especially when you send a video of the issue!
