What is IFTTT?

IFTTT is a service that combines connections with a simple statement: if this, then that. "If this" is called the Trigger, and "if that" is called the Action. Together, they make up what is called a Recipe. Channels are the basic building blocks of recipes, and examples of channels are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, weather, email, or Google Calendar. There are many more.
