IFTTT: One incredible service
If you haven’t discovered “If This Then That,” you are definitely missing out on a great service. It hooks up with just about every social network, not to mention e-mail, weather, self-hosted blogs, Craigslist, and a lot more.
You create “recipes” where is something happens, something else happens. For example, “If I post something on my Facebook wall, it automatically sends a text to my friend Tom.” Or “If I post a blog entry to Kantor.com,” it automatically posts an excerpt to Facebook and Twitter.”
I even have it sending me a text every time the weather report calls for rain.
IFTTT has just about infinite possiblities. Well worth signing up for. Oh, did I mention it’s free?
