Trying to stay relevant online is kind of a full time job. Between social networks, blogs, apps, etc., you really can find yourself drowning and in need of a helping hand. That’s where IFTTT (abbreviation for “If This Then That”) comes in. IFTTT takes most of your social networking sites, apps, and email accounts and helps manage them by doing tons of the work for you. It is like your social media middle man, to say the least. Did you just update your profile pic on Facebook and want to update Twitter with the same pic? IFTTT has your back. Want to Tweet every time you update your WordPress blog? IFTTT has you covered again.
There are a ton of “Recipes” that you can create to different tasks between any of the 59 Channels (social network sites, apps and email accounts) that you allow IFTTT to access. If you aren’t really creative at coming up with recipes you can easily install one of the thousands already created by IFTTT members. There’s ways to receive text messages based on the weather, send all Instagram pictures that you like to Dropbox to save, or make a Tweet your Facebook status.
Overall, IFTTT is a great tool to have if you’re a blogger, social media guru or want to make the internet work for you.
