Have your Facebook posts become so rare that your friends are wondering if you’ve moved to Mars? Do you want to become more active on a social network without wasting time writing new posts?
You have come to the right place. We’ve compiled some of the best IFTTT recipes that are automatically posted to your Facebook account. All this is practical. Some may even become hysterical.
What is IFTTT?
Before we get started, let’s sum up what IFTTT or «If this, then this» can do. The free service allows regular users to create chains of assertions called «recipes» that are triggered based on changes to other web services such as Gmail, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
How to do it
In this post, you will be adding new and existing recipes to your IFTTT account. To get started, you need to sign up for a free IFTTT account through the company’s website or through iTunes on the Google Play IF app for iOS and Android.
The ideal way to add or create an IFTTT recipe is to use the IF app. Most likely, the recipe you are looking for has already been added. If not, then creating a new recipe is relatively easy.
To find a recipe, go to the IF app and select the recipe icon in the top right corner of the screen. Next to «My Recipes», click the «+» button. This action brings up the Services Offered screen. Find the service you would like to use. If you have not yet connected the service to IFTTT, you need to do so by clicking on the service link and then selecting Connect and follow any additional instructions. (You are often asked to verify using your smart product credentials.)
Once connected, you’ll see a list of «Popular Recipes» that use the service you just added. You can also select recipes from the Featured and Collections tabs or from the Search icon in the top right corner of the screen.
To create a new recipe, go to the IF app and select the recipe icon in the top right corner of the screen. Then, next to My Recipes, click the + button, which will open the Services Offered screen. Select Create Recipe at the bottom of the screen.
From here, you’ll create an IF/Then statement. Click the «+» after «If» and then select a service.
For example, select «Date and Time» under «Services Offered». On the next screen, click Create Recipe. In the «Select a trigger» section, select «Every day at». Select 9 a.m. and then Next. Now select the «+» after «Then» and select the service. Select Facebook. In the Choose an Action section, select Generate Status Message.
On this next page, add text to the status message field and select Next.
You will now see a summary of the recipe you just created. In this case, you will see «If every day at 9 am, then create a status message on the timeline of (your name).» Schedule the recipe by clicking Done.
Now it’s time to add some Facebook status recipes.
