IFTTT is a really smart automation system for most of the social medias. I definitely think that Freesound could totally benefit from becoming a channel in this site. It works like this:
Now how would this affect freesound?
You could have a trigger that is activated whenever:
* you upload a public domain sound, and post it to facebook.
* Someone downloads, comments or rates your sound, send the user a thanks message.
* Someone remixes your sound, post the remix on tumblr.
* Someone quotes you in the freesound forum, send an SMS to your phone.
The list goes on and on and on.
If there is anything freesound should do during 2013 is to engage IFTTT. It helps you as a sound designer to spread info on your work around without doing a single bit.
Hello, thanks for sharing this.
Although at Freesound we are inclined to sway towards a non-social-media type of service, this is however, interesting and perhaps extremely practical. Freesound has stayed relatively contained over the past years, maybe its time to expand a little to a service just that bit more significant.
I've forwarded this idea to the tech team.
