There must be something about me at this time of the year .. apparently I first signed up with IFTTT six years ago! They even sent me a ‘happy birthday’ message this morning …

It’s been six years since you joined IFTTT on February 6, 2012.

… and then tried to give me some guidance on using the service more with some recommendations.

I have to say the 4 applets that they picked for me were neither relevant, interesting, clever or even unknown … you would have thought that with all the triggers and tracking that they have behind the scenes that they could have done a lot better with their personal recommendations.

For example they know the services I have connected to, how often my applets get triggered, how long they have been there … which is a clue to where I spend time, what I do and where my interests lie.
