Untappd

Untappd is a social silo for posting consumptions of beer (which they call "Check-ins" to beers) and optionally any or all of where (venue, thus making it an actual checkin), 1-5 star rating, photo, or review commentary. Users can "toast" (a drink-specific form of like) each other's "check-ins". Users earn badges for the quantity and variety of beer they drink.

Posting to Untappd, via their app, is easy but getting your content out is a little trickier. They do offer standard "share" options but nothing automatic.

User:Davidjohnmead.com uses the WpeMatico plugin for WordPress to watch his Untappd RSS feeds. When a new entry appears it creates a post on his blog.

You can find the Untappd RSS feed for your posts by logging in, visiting your account settings, and scrolling down to 'View your RSS feed'.

As you can enter custom HTML when the WpeMatico plugin creates the post David Mead inserts the link back to the original post with rel="me".

Example

Zapier

Khürt Williams uses Zapier to push Untappd check-ins back to his site. An original entry is created on Untappd. When a new entry appears a Zapier generated post is created on WordPress. The Zap is broken into two stages. The first stage uploads to WordPress the attachment image from the Untappd. The second stage attaches the uploaded image as a featured image, and pulls in various fields from Untappd. Using various Untappd fields, the excerpts section of the post is prepopulated with text, e.g. "I am drinking a Jersey Juice by Flying Fish Brewing Company at Rocky Hill Inn". The post exceprt is used to set the tweet text. The post is set to publish immediately.
