TALK 2: Automating WordPress and Social Networks with IFTTT

Writing a post is good. Getting it in front of an audience requires some effort.
Fortunately, there is a free online service called If This Then That (IFTTT) which allows you to automate social sharing of your posts with their easy to use “recipes”.

I’ll show you how to create an account on IFTTT, search for WordPress “recipes” and connect your WordPress site to the social networks.
