Adam Burk Shares Insight on "Buffer"

Adam Burk will share his experience with Buffer, a super easy-to-use social media content manager. Adam has found Buffer to be a really easy way to reduce his time spent organizing content and sharing all the things he thinks that everyone else in the world should know about. Helpful for power users as well as those who think social media is important, should be using it, but don't. Buffer integrates with Facebook, Facebook Pages, Twitter, and LinkedIn.


Adam will also talk his involvement with TEDxDirigo, a world-class platform celebrating innovation and creativity in Maine.
