Practically link together “everything” you do online

IFTTT (still in beta release) helps you link together almost everything you do online via its Recipes. Create your own recipe or freely use any of the hundreds pre-written by others made available to you.

Example 1:

All my Foursquare check-ins are captured for tracking purposes in my Google Calendar.
The simple recipe I used is “if {{Any new check-ins on Foursquare}} then {{Quick add event to My Google calendar}}”. Voila!

Example 2:

All my new Tweets with #fb hashtags are now displayed in my Facebook’s news feed.
The recipe is “if {{New tweet by you with hashtag #fb, by @Hadramie then {{Create a status message on my Facebook account’s news feed}}”.

Some of the recipes (currently 4632) in use are:

  • Everytime you are tagged in a photo on Facebook, it will be sent to Dropbox.
  • Bring/donate umbrellas for #OccupyWallSt events if it rains.
  • Creates an Evernote every time you “star” an item in Google Reader.
  • $AAPL new high price to Boxcar

Mind you this is just a tip of the iceberg. The possibilities are enormous. Go concoct your own recipe right now at http://ifttt.com/recipes.
