Due to an outage that part of Facebook is experiencing, it is not currently possible to connect Facebook or Instagram accounts to Buffer through the web dashboard. We are monitoring the situation and hope for this issue to be resolved soon. In the meantime, you’re able to connect those channels to your Buffer account via the iOS app, which you can grab from the App Store. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be the case on the Android app. We’ll continue to update this status page as more information becomes available.
