I found a service that you need.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a mom, a kid, a blogger, a sports enthusiast, all of the above or none of the above. There is some way that IFTTT can help you.
IFTTT stands for “If This, Then That” and is pronounced like “gift” but without the g. It automates just about any online task you can think of.
The IFTTT website (and app) has thousands of recipes you can use with 65 different services to automate just about any online activity.
How Can Moms Use IFTTT?
A great way to keep track of what your child is posting to social media is to set up text alerts when they post to Instagram. This is also a good way to see post from those you want to keep up with but never seem to be on Instagram at the same time.
Text reminders for chores. #boom
Sign your child up for text alerts when their teachers post assignments to their blogs. They’ll definitely thank you for this one :)
How Can Bloggers Use IFTTT?
We all know you can only connect one facebook account to Pinterest, and it kind of stinks. IFTTT gives you a way to add pins from certain (or all) Pinterest boards to your facebook fan page! Need to find an other way to post from your blog to facebook? Since facebook doesn’t show posts from Newtorked Blogs (the standby RSS to facebook feed service) to as many of your fans, try using IFTTT to autopost!
Just like Pinterest, you can only link one facebook account at a time with Instagram. Hashtag your photo with #yourblogname and have it automatically sent to your blog’s fan page!
How Can Sports Enthusiasts Use IFTTT?
Set up text alerts through ESPN to receive real-time alerts to breaking sports news on your phone.
Follow news and score updates from your favorite teams via email.
And for those fantasy sports players, make sure they don’t miss a thing when their teams are up for draft.
The users over at IFTTT also have a sense of humor. Every once in a while you’ll run across something like this when browsing:
I’m signing Michael up for that reminder service.
Work smarter, not harder, right?
