  1. Trigger: New Item in Posting Campaign
  2. Trigger: New Item in Personal Feed
  3. Action: Create Item in Personal Feed

At the IFTTT platform, you create applets with a trigger (If this) and an action (then that). 

Learn more about IFTTT applets

RSS Ground can be used as a Trigger for automated content sharing. There are two scenarios: (a) New Item in Posting Campaign or (b) New Item in Personal feed. In Scenario (a) one of your posting campaigns will be the content source. When this campaign will be making a new post, it will automatically send this post also to Zapier. In scenario (b) one of your personal feeds will be the content source. As soon as you add new item to this personal feed it will be automatically sent to Zapier.

RSS Ground can be used as an Action for content collection: when new content appears in the selected trigger, a new item will be created in the specified personal feed.
