ifttt (if this then that) puts the internet to work for you by combining existing online services such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. You simply create a task by defining a trigger and an action. For example “when someone tags me in a Facebook photo” (trigger), “send me a text message” (action).

This all may sound a bit confusing at first, but when you read the About-page (aptly named ifttt.com/wtf) all becomes clear and you realize how powerful this system will be. I can’t wait to try it! Sign up today.
