Course Description

Do you have a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google, YouTube, or Flickr Account? If you're not using Social Media Automation, you're MISSING OUT!

You'll learn exactly what we expect to do in the lesson on Creating the BrowseBlog Project.


Set up Tumblr to create a new post when you 'like' a video on YouTube. Twitter will then Tweet a link to the Tumblr Page, and Facebook will share an update with the Tumblr post as it's content.

Section 3: Part 1 - From Tumblr to Your Social Networks

You'll learn exactly what we expect to do in the lesson on linking your Tumblr Account to your Twitter Account. We have to do this so that Posts from Tumblr can be tweeted out on Twitter Automagically.


In this video you'll use a recipe to automatically Socially Market your Tumblr Blog content on Twitter.


In this video you'll use a recipe to automatically Socially Market your Tumblr Blog content on Facebook.


In this video you'll learn about how IFTTT Recipes run, and whats going on with yours. You'll also learn how to test that your Recipes are working correctly, and verify that the results are what you'd expect.

Section 4: Part 2 - From Youtube to Tumblr

You'll learn exactly what we expect to do in the lesson on Populating the Blog by browsing the web.


In this video we will go use a Recipe to create new Tumblr Blog Posts anytime I like a video on YouTube. This is why I called the project BrowserBlog, because you can put stuff on your blog, just by browsing the Web like you normally would.

In this video, we will walk through creating our own recipes from scratch. I'll modify the default stuff that IFTTT gives us, and after seeing this you're gonna wonder why you've waited so long!

Note: I messed up in the video & decided not to reshoot on purpose. I left it in because I felt it was important for you to see how I approached fixing it, until I got what I was looking for.
