Ifttt and Zapier are services that provide a simple rule based mechanism that lets any user create "If this then that" recipes, the user only needs to select (from a user friendly user interface) the "this service" that triggers an event, and the "that service" that will get a notification.
Some examples of "If this then that" recipe's are:

The number of services that Ifttt and Zapier can monitor for changes is constantly increasing and the list is too long to mention.
