A new website with the somewhat strange name ifttt.com launched recently and has become very popular. IFTT stands for If This Then That. The site basically allows you to automate all kinds of tasks by setting up a "recipe" that says : if X happens then do Y. For example you can setup a task that says if someone mentions you on Twitter send you a SMS or to call you.
The real power of the site comes from allowing users to share their "recipes" - so you can simply use an existing recipe and modify it for your needs.
The following are some examples of user-created recipes :
- Send Google Plus updates to Twitter
- Send your starred items in Google Reader to Instapaper
- Tweet my Facebook status updates
- Post starred tweets (containing links) to Instapaper
- Get an #invite to a brand new #beta #startup instantly!
