The Case for IFTTT: Just what is IFTTT!?
Social networks are about people. Though I had tried dlvr.it in the past, I tried to keep this manual through something like Hootsuite. This saved me some time, but I was getting highly inefficient at posting everywhere. Again, why care about everywhere? Because of the simple reason that 2-3 websites are still someway to go in building up a credible audience, and until that happens you have to keep the conversation on. I receive very less feedback, and that is received thanks to social media. So it is extremely important for me to maintain conversation on multiple forums, but I was not really good at it. Fast forward to IFTTT.
How to use IFTTT?
- select source (e.g. Facebook, RSS feed of your website, Twitter)
- specify the criteria for selecting posts in the source (e.g. only if posts contain a #technosanct hashtag)
- select destination (e.g. Facebook Page, Facebook, Twitter, Email, GTalk, Buffer)
- specify what you do in the destination (e.g post a message)
