Buffer, a social media manager that aims to become a “widespread sharing standard,” opened its API to developers today.

Buffer lets users post to their Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts (Google+ isn’t as lenient with its API) and offers the usual array of analytic feedback. However, its focus on non-original content sharing, especially photos, videos and articles, and individual users differentiates it from a crowded market.

While competitors like HootSuite and Sprout Social mainly target companies by offering them a dashboard for managing media, co-founder Leo Widrich tells me Buffer has a wide variety of users, many of whom use the service for personal accounts.
