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.

We Are Visible

La rete aiuta a mantenere e riallaciare contatti lontani, ma spesso anche a far sentire la voce di chi ha meno possibilità di chiedere aiuto. We Are Visible nasce dalla volontà di homeless che non si arrendono alla loro condizione e, attraverso l’uso dei social media, rimangono vivi, fanno amicizie e magari ottengono anche un lavoro per ripartire. Il sito spiega come aprirsi una casella di posta, un blog, un account twitter o facebook, così da poter iniziare ad “essere visibili”. Qui puoi leggere alcune delle loro storie e iniziare a seguirli.
