IFTTT is a service that lets you create powerful connections with one simple statement:In This post we are going to see how IFTTT can automate student ministry tasks.
The that part of a Recipe is an Action. Some example Actions are “send me a text message” or “create a status message on Facebook.” – provided from iftt.com
I love IFTTT because it is a set it forget type of app for me.
The first IFTTT recipe creates a list on twitter from specific hashtag. We use our #atstudents for a lot of our events. So when students use #yourchoiceofhashtag it will place them on your twitter student list.
Instagram to flickr is very handy! We use flickr to store all our photos that are posted through instagram, Facebook and twitter. This allows us to get photos easily for printing, and to use at events.
Add Google Calendar entries with “ScheduleTweet” as the title, and this recipe will tweet the Description of the event you created. The Tweet will go out 15 mins before the time off the event. This is kinda like hootsuite for free.
The last one is to keep your profile images the same. So change it on Facebook and twitter updates at the same time.
