Today we shall see how to turn on Light simply by uploading post on Facebook and also to turn the Light off by Uploading Post.
( Here when i upload a Link It turn my light On, and if i upload Photos on FB it turns off my Light)
Keep Reading the post to make one of this by Yourself.
We will be using simple things that lane around.

In this project we shall use the Raspberry pi (im using model 3 b+) Preassumptions: It is assumed that you have successfully installed raspbian OS on your pi , if not install it first. I am accessing pi remotely via SSH connection. Lets Get Start... 1) Make an acoount on Facebok. 2) Make an account on IFTTT, and 3) Make an account on particle Background: IFTTT is both a website and a mobile app. If This Then That, also known as IFTTT is a freeware web-based service that creates chains of simple conditional statements, called applets. An applet is triggered by changes that occur within other web services such as Gmail, Facebook, Telegram, Instagram # Particle this is a platform for edge-to-cloud IoT platform to help users to connect the unconnected. With powerful hardware solutions that thrive at the edge, reliable and efficient connectivity technologies, and software to manage IoT deployment.

    Installing Particle Agent on Raspberry Pi

    To connect your Raspberry Pi to the Particle Cloud, you need to install the Particle Agent on your raspberry pi. The Particle Agent will run in the background on the Raspberry Pi and allows you to write and run firmware. Particle cloud agent is the software that interacts with the GPIO pins on the Pi.

    Step 1:- Install the Particle Cloud agent by simply pasting the below command on your pi terminal:

    bash <( curl -sL https://particle.io/install-pi )
