35 Awesome IFTTT Recipes To Archive Your Social Media Data

By . Filed in Web 2.0

If you’re an avid social media user, it’s always smart to have a backup of your data. Archiving your data is great in cases where a site shuts down, or your account is compromised or you want to close down your accounts. Having an ongoing archive however will fast become a really good idea, especially when something bad happens to your online accounts, and you can’t be sure if you can still retrieve the data that belongs to you.

Various tools help you backup your data from various several sites all at once, like SocialSafe and Backupify but if you’re only looking to archive only a site or two, then these may not be the best options for you. Plus, they don’t let you backup your data to your Cloud storage be it Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, Evernote or Box.

But there is an alternative: IFTTT recipes.

The best thing about the service is that you get to fill in what happens for ‘this’ and ‘that’ with a large variety of channels like Facebook, RSS, email, Pocket, Evernote, HootSuite, and more.
