Established in late 2011, this relatively new service ‘Internet to work’ for you. The creators of IFTTT observed the digital world of the internet around them, and realised how they could make things simpler for a user to collect, share & collate information across social platforms with ease. The way that this is achieved is through “triggers and actions” chosen by the user. Much of what IFTTT achieves could be done through various APIs, but the level of integration offered, along with ease of use, is unprecedented.
Now, ask yourself a few simple questions:
- Do you use social networking tools in a daily basis (Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube)?
- Do you find yourself uploading a photo or sharing same messages on twitter and facebook?
- Do you wish your instagram photos to be posted on tumblr or flickr automagically?
- Do you wish get something done when one of your email, favourite blog or social network site gets updated?
If any of the above you ever wanted to do then IFTTT will make the magic possible for you. Let us have a quick understanding of IFTTT and how it works.
