Social Media Day

Today is my learn new social media day. It's too cold to play outside, and the malls are too packed to shop, so my laptop & I are ensconced on the couch checking out a variety of social media sites. I've been using ShareThis today to promote an upcoming DAR event at my local chapter. The list of sites to share your posts via ShareThis seems to have exploded since I last paid attention. This post is to test two new sites I've joined: Tumblr and IFTTT. Apparently Tumblr and Blogger don't talk to each other directly, so it was recommended that I try IFTT which stands for If This, Then That. If then statements? I haven't used them since high school!? Luckily, they use icons and simple words to guide me through setting up the "recipe". If you have a Tumblr account or follow me on Twitter, we can see together if I remember enough of high school math to get the equation right.

Share This

This is my first try at using Share This app on Blogger and a few new social media sites.
