Cool Website Tip #3: Ifttt (If This, Then That).

Programming for the masses.

This fancy little website has huge ambition and if done right, will probably solve a problem we didn't even know we had.

Behold, If This, Then That.

Basically, you create recipes on that site and it does the rest.

For example:

"If someone tags me on Facebook, then copy the picture over to my DropBox folder."

"If I post a new article on my blog, then send a twitter message letting everybody know."

"If I take an instagrm picture, then share it on Facebook."

"If I favorite a picture on Flickr, then save that picture to my DropBox folder."

All you have to do is give the website the proper credentials for the ingredients and you're set. It works very well.

You can even see a list of the most popular recipes on the site, some of which are just incredibly useful.

I'm already using a couple of recipes myself and it works just as the tin says. Give it a try, it's completely free.

This is a really sweet idea. It's creative and relevant though I don't use social networks a lot, I think it'll be interesting :)

Is there no "If someone tags me at Facebook, untag" action? That would be sweet. :)
