IFTTT A brilliant service

Marc Rufer 13 Jan 2015 IFTTT RSS socialmedia

IFTTT.com, a brilliant service for everybody for triggering actions based on channels. While searching for a possibility to automatically post and tweet new items of an RSS-Feed a friend has recommended me IFTTT.

IFTTT means “If this, then that” and describes quite good what it does. The base of IFTTT are channels like facebook, twitter, gmail and a lot more. The idea of the “if this”-part is, that you can trigger events like new posts on facebook, new items in rss-feeds and so on. Such a trigger will then kick off an action, which builds the “then that”-part. For my case it worked perfectly. I created a recipe, that’s how IFTTT calls the combination of a trigger and an action from channels. My recipe triggers new items of the RSS-Feed of my blog and creates a new tweet on my twitter profile. A friend recommended this service to me (Thanks to José Álvarez) and I recommend it to you. The website is build very intuitive, easy to use and provides a lot of possibilities. Try it out!
