A new way to organise your digital networks
Following a couple of prompts (thanks @Skipinder & @SuchPrettyEyes), I’ve finally managed to sit down and have a play around with IF This Then That. In the words of my husband “why didn’t I think of inventing that!?”
The site lets you connect your accounts from across 47 options in order to trigger actions. Essentially, each channel becomes a “this” or “that” with the first action triggering the other.
You create your own “Recipes” which are private or can be shared if you think the combination would be useful for other users.
So far, I’ve set up my Instagram pictures to be automatically saved to a Dropbox folder, twitter mentions to be added to Storypad for Storify (great for building brand engagement stories), new WordPress posts to go to LinkedIn (not revolutionary, I can set this up easily already) and lastly my YouTube favourites are being sent to Dropbox.
I particularly like the range of applications available to users. It’s incredibly easy to set up your Recipe’s and although some links are easily managed with other existing programmes, IFTTT significantly opens up the field, upping the control and customisation to incredible levels!
So, what are your favourite Recipes?
