with 3 comments

A review by Information Today Europe:

IFTTT (also known as “If This Then That”) is a free web service accessible via It allows users with an account to connect over 50 online and messaging services (channels) and automatically feed information and data between those channels. It can be an extremely useful tool for:

  • Drawing information together from a variety of resources
  • Sharing information across different networks
  • Managing information flows
  • Extending your reach and spreading your message
  • Backing up and archiving information and files
  • Creating timely alerts
  • Doing this all as quickly and easily as possible and in one place

Broadly speaking many of the channels can be broken down the following types (examples given):

  • Social networks (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn)
  • Bookmarking sites (Delicious, Pinboard)
  • Image sharing sites (Flickr, Instagram)
  • Blogging services (Blogger, WordPress)
  • Video and audio sharing websites (Youtube, Vimeo, Soundcloud)
  • File storage services (Dropbox, Google Drive)
  • Document collaboration services (Google Drive, Evernote)
  • RSS feeds
  • Email and messaging services (Gmail, SMS)

  3. IFTT is really a great tool for social media geeks. I often use it to manage all my social profiles in one time. Buffer is also an useful tool for the same.
