I’ve been using If This Then That (Ifttt) for a few years now. I tend to use it for pulling information together and sharing it to a variety of services and social networks easily. Without it I’d be forever logging in and out of services to collect and share information. There are similar services to Ifttt, but it works well for me.
Below are a collection of blog posts, articles and presentations I’ve written on the subject and I’ve also written a chapter on Ifttt and similar services for the forthcoming More Library Mashups book, titled “Ifttt makes data play easy?”
- Using ifttt For Productivity And More: My initial introduction to Ifttt (2011)
- It’s Raining – Twitter Says Get To The Library: using the Ifttt weather channel to creatively promote library services
- Pulling photo storage together with ifttt: Overcoming the problem of posting images to a range of image services
- : I used Google Reader to post aggregated content to a wide range of services and when it was discontinued I needed something to replace it that suited my needs. This is how I did it. I still use a very similar method, but with Feedly instead of Pocket.
- Creating a CPD or Work Log Using ifttt: Describes how I pull together work related information from a variety of services into a single document to create a Continuing Professional Development document for appraisals.
- Twitter Archives And IFTTT: All about Twitter allowing users to archive tweets and then not.
