Do you struggle to complete all your social media tasks every day?
Do you think you’re just doing the repetitive tasks on social media networks?
If yes, IFTTT ( If This Then That) has a solution for you. Using IFTTT, you can get your online apps and devices working together.
We know there are tons of plugins available for social media automation, but we will show you a method that will not require any plugin installation. All you need to do is create a free account on the website.
Unlike other plugins, it includes all social media networks like Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Reddit, Dig, etc. All these social media networks can be integrated together using IFTTT.
If you go back to your high school, then you might remember that we were using if/then statement for solving various numerical problems. For example: If you score good marks, then you will get into a good college.
Using similar logic, IFTTT automates all web-based activities. It creates a series of the conditional statement and automates the given task. It really puts the internet to work.
To start using this service first, you need to create a free account on IFTTT. Once done, you can automate any web-based tasks for end number of times. Yes, this service is available free of cost. You can access all features from the very first day of the account creation.
But before starting with the article, let us first understand the term Applets.
In simple terms, Applets means a small application program performing one or more specific functions. The same thing is also applicable in IFTTT. In IFTTT, you will require creating an applet based on certain logical conditions.
The best of this website are hundreds of readily-made applets are available for free to you. All you need to do is search your suitable applets and change it as per your requirement.
If these readily-made applets do not satisfy your needs, you can also create your own. Assuming you are already logged in to your IFTTT account, we have shared the step by step tutorial to create an applet for posting automatically on Facebook below.
That’s it. Your applet is ready now. It will post your latest blog on Facebook automatically.
Note: If you are creating this applet for the first time, it will ask you to provide access to your WordPress and Facebook account before creating the applet. This is a one-time activity and once provided, it will not ask you to re-authenticate the same again.
Besides social media automation, it also allows you to automate many other things. For example,
Your turn: Share with us what other apps or websites you use. Further, feel free to contact us if you face any problem in creating and using applets on IFTTT. We will be happy to help you. You can put your questions in the comment box and we will get back to you.
