Really excited to kick off another round of videos with +Joel Gascoigne  in a new series: Founders Chat Friday. 

Our first one just went live today about remote working and the tools we use to make it happen. 

Would love your insights on the topic!

Hey +Leo Widrich and +Joel Gascoigne.

I think it's awesome that you guys are a remote team. In my opinion the benefits far exceed the downsides. Just a few benefits I can think of off the top of my head:

-Higher Productivity: The ability to work from the comfort of your home (or your second home at Starbucks)
-Lower Costs: no expensive leases, no traveling expenses, less utilities, etc.
-Global Workforce: Since there is no physical location, there is less restrictions on who you can higher.
-Happier Employees: When you let people work from whereever they want it shows you trust them. This trust breeds goodwill.

P.S. Love the company and I'm a passionate Buffer user!

So excited to share this post. A lot of people have reached out to us and asked about the best workflows and tools we use at Buffer on a day to day basis.

These 8 are the key ones keeping us on track. And this is exactly how we make use of them:

Super excited to share a breakdown of some of the most popular and useful Buffer features today.

Wow, thanks for the kind words here +Guy Kawasaki . 
 
Behold the awesomeness of +Buffer 

Buffer is the center of my social-media efforts. It enables me to write one post and deploy it on Google+ (pages only, not profiles), Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. 

I can attach a picture or post a video, and each service can have its own schedule. There are analytics for your past posts, and multiple people can administer the account. 

Learn more here:

bufferapp.com

Disclosure: I advise Buffer--and I'm proud of it.

Wow, what an incredible journey it has been.

I remember one particular Skype conversation with +Joel Gascoigne  about 2.5 years ago. He was working on this cool new app called bfffr to help you post to Twitter.

Incredibly grateful to have been able to come on board and be part of the Buffer story, I've been loving every second of it! 

(wrote about the full Buffer story here: http://blog.bufferapp.com/from-0-to-1000000-users-the-journey-and-statistics-of-buffer)
 
Wow, thanks so much to all of you for being on board.

We just hit our biggest milestone with 1,000,000 awesome people on board using Buffer!

We though it'd be the perfect opportunity to make all our numbers and the Buffer story public here.

Take a look: http://buff.ly/1aNWMnZ
