Automate cloud-based services with IFTTT: Monday Productivity Pointers

IFTTT is a cloud service whose acronym takes its name from the popular programming algorithm of an “if” statement: If this, then that! IFTTT connects to popular cloud services that you use such as Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Evernote, and more, and automates common interactions between them—without you being involved at all. IFTTT calls these a recipe. Examples of popular IFTTT recipes include tasks like updating all your social networks with any new avatar photo uploaded to Twitter, downloading any photo of you posted on Facebook to a Dropbox folder, among many others. The possibilities are nearly endless.

In the first video this week, I’ll show you how to create your own IFTTT recipe from scratch.
