I had an issue with IFTTT (If This Then That). It was posting videos on it’s own to my site, the issue that I had was that I never even watched the videos, shared, or liked them (I do like them but not on YouTube) etc. It wasn’t any videos that I made or have uploaded which are only 4, and it was looking like I was posting them as my own.
I ended up resetting my IFTTT password and turning everything off, I then deleted all of the posts, until I have time to research them myself and write something around the videos then share them giving credit where credit is due.
Anyway IFTTT is a handy little automation service that when used the right way can help you promote your content across different platforms very easy once it’s set up.
Let’s say you write this killer post and you want people on your personal Facebook profile, your Facebook Page, Twitter, and maybe even Google+… well with IFTTT once you set it up and finish your post, once save or publish it hit it shares it on all accounts you have setup.
They have apps for Android and Apple devices or you can just log in on the website. So what exactly is IFTTT, well lets see…
IFTTT is a free platform that helps you do more with all your apps and devices using Applets to manage your services.
Applets bring your services together allowing you to create new experiences and opening up new ways to get things done with services like Dropbox, Google Drive, Facebook, Twitter, Evernote, Instagram, YouTube, and more.
Also it’s easy to turn applets on and off if something doesn’t work right, because sometimes you may have to play with the settings, but there is plenty of help online on blogs, and videos on YouTube.
