ifttt: Put the internet to work for you

I came across to this new web platform launched last september in San Francisco. It simply gathered lots of tasks you can activate to connect your social network profiles, or get instant alerts through sms and email of different thing that are happening on the web. For example you can save all your Instagram photos to Dropbox, or, every time you are tagged in a photo on Facebook, it will be sent to Dropbox. You can also transform Twitter direct messages in sms or make a task that if rain tomorrow then SMS me”. The website is clever, clean and very easy to use for everyone. It’s good if you want to automatically activate tasks to all your profiles, not only for duplicating status updates: backing up pics on Dropbox is awesome and really useful for me. Try it here.

How you take control of your digital life

Even if what we do online is recorded forever, you still have control on what part of your life you want to share with the rest of the world. Just think a couple of seconds before puslish a photo or write a sentence on twitter.

Instagram

Instagram è un programma per iPhone che permette come tanti altri di condividere foto con amici: la caratteristica principale sono però i filtri “vintage” che si possono applicare alle foto prima di pubblicarle. In circa 2 mesi ha già raggiunto un milione di utenti, grazie ad alcuni elementi chiave: è gratis, è facile e veloce da usare, è linkato a tutti i principali social network a cui siamo registrati, gli effetti creati sulle nostre foto riescono sempre a dare fascino e poesia. Con Instagram siamo diventati tutti fotografi. Se avete un iPhone provatelo.
