Loving If This Then That
We’ve been having lots of fun today testing out this new service. Still in Beta at the moment IFTTT.com allows you to create triggers and actions across a range of services. For example I set a trigger to email Miles to go and get ice creams when the temp got higher than 16 degrees.
You can also configure a blog to post Facebook if the title has a certain tag, or a post to Twitter if stocks go above a certain level.
The system already has 30 channels which allow you to configure a range of actions and rules across Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Gmail, Stocks, Weather and WordPress.
It’s early days but showing lots of potential for connecting up different bits of the internet.
