Ifttt is an online application that will help your social workflow. It has been out for sometime now but I had never gotten around to using it until today.
The way ifttt works is you create tasks for doing different things around the Internet to make your life easier.
Currently I have a task in place that helps me schedule tweets throughout the day. Normally I read all the blogs I follow, first thing in the morning and most of the time there are several I want to share but at 6:30am in the morning there aren’t many people awake. Additionally that would be 10 or so articles I want to share and doing it all in 15 minutes is pointless.
The way my task works is when I star or favourite an article in Google Reader on my iPhone or iPad- or Flipboard as it uses Google Reader – it automatically gets entered into Buffer, which is an app that schedules my tweets throughout the day. The reason I need ifttt to do this is because Buffer does not have an add-on for mobile or Flipboard.
I can’t wait to discover what else I can. You should try it.
