Great article... definitely can see myself adding Buffer to my arsenal and making use of both services. Thanks for sharing!

We currently use Hootsuite and so far have been impressed with one major issue, publishing to Linkedin groups. They currently have issues providing the same character limit and link preview/thumbnail image ability you get when you post natively.
Our presence relies heavily on multiple groups on Linkedin to engage adult learners as we are a higher ed institution. As the head of social media I'm establishing a governance and promoting more involvement in social media using Hootsuite so to not provide this capability significantly handicaps me.

I'll agree with Ina. I have recently switched to BuzzBundle and haven't look back since.

I wish BufferApp had smart scheduling rather than using fixed times. I wish HootSuite allowed us to limit the number of updates per account per day.
For fixed-time scheduling, try GrabInbox (grabinbox.com) from the JustUnfollow team. You get unlimited accounts and an unlimited buffer. It's also free. Development seems to have stalled but the service works.
I use GrabInbox to provide a baseline of updates and HootSuite AutoSchedule for more timely activity. This combination may work for you.

I'm new in those matters. But I wanted to thank you as your article is well written. I have more to learn and being a small business I want only one either buffer or hootsuite. I run a tourism office and I post any link related to the small country Belize Where I live and work. I want to add link with Pinterest tumblr and more but those I can't add in hootsuite or buffer ...is there any app where I can regulated all posts ?
which one do you think will be better for my business?
any info you like to share will be welcome.
(if you need info about vacation in Belize I can help in return)

Thanks for the article! I've enjoyed reading it, since I'm familiar with both HootSuite and Buffer. Agree that both tools are good to serve differeent purposes. In HootSuite I liked the analytics feature, but came not to use it that often.
My choice have been BuzzBundle so far - http://www.link-assistant.com/buzzbundle/. The main pros are YouTube, blogs and forums integration, convenient interface, plus searching for any brand mentions across the web.

Personally, I think Hootsuite wins on this. I have used it for a while and I'm impressed with its overall service and features. Although Buffer also has some exciting features that I would love to use but to me Hootsuite is the best.
In case you are looking for other alternatives (just if you want to have more social media tools to use) maybe this list would help you find what fits in your needs.

While you gave a very good comparison of the features, Mike...who would you declare the winner of the Heavyweight Title?
The belt is only big enough for one.
