What is Update time and how it works?

Update Time

Update time refers to the time taken by your feeds to get refreshed on the wall. It is the time interval after which your new social media posts will be displayed on the wall. You can see the update time on the top right side after logging in to your account.

How does it work?

The update time of your social wall starts from the moment your plan is activated. All the feeds being displayed on the social wall are automatically refreshed with new social media content after the next update time interval.

The update time depends upon the pricing plans that you have selected. Let’s assume you have selected a Display Launch Plan. The update time of a Display launch plan is  15 mins. It means that your following refreshed feeds will take up to 15 min to update on your social wall, and this process will automatically repeat every 15 mins.

To understand in detail, let’s look at some examples. Consider you have a Website Basic Plan.

Example 1

Assuming your wall has just updated and instantly, within a few minutes, a new post has been uploaded on social media. Then this new content will have to wait another 10 mins (your update time) to be displayed on your social wall.

Example 2

Assuming 5 minutes of the update time interval is over, a new social media feed just got posted on one of your selected feed source platforms. Then, this new feed will only take 5 minutes to be displayed on your social wall (once the cycle of the update time interval of 10 mins is completed).
