Once again we have a ifttt recipe that seems to be useful and interesting. Wondering about what is ifttt ? ‘Ifttt’ (“if this then that”) which is basically a simple task creator with online apps. To understand quickly let me give an example : If a photo is uploaded to Flickr (THIS) then a link to it will also be sent out as a tweet (THAT). So when you put a trigger (THIS) together with an action (THAT) you get a completed task. You can create your own recipe or use any pre-defined recipes from the box.

Today we got a useful ifttt recipe that uploads every tagged photo of yours in Facebook to your dropbox account. Every time you are tagged in a photo on Facebook, it will be sent to Dropbox. Pretty useful no ? At some point of time we might have thought that if there is a app for this action then it would be simply great, now you don’t have to worry. Use this ifttt recipe to get the work done.
