I’ve come to the conclusion that there are two kinds of libraries: those that are drowning in social media, and those that view social media as a passing fad.
This post is for the former group who are drowning in social media. And there’s so much out there it can drive you insane!
Enter IFTTT, or IF THIS THEN THAT (a nod to the Boolean nerds out there). It’s a mashup tool that allows you to create recipes for your different social media outlets to interact. Want to automatically add new WordPress posts to your Facebook fan page? IFTTT can do that. Want to sync your Delicious bookmarks with Zootool? IFTTT can do that too. In fact, you can create as many recipes as you want, in as many configurations as you can think of with IFTTT.
There is only one word to describe this tool. AWESOME!!
