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 Website-Basic Plan. The update time of a Website Basic plan is 2 hours. It means that your next refreshed feeds will take up to 2 hours to update on your social wall and this process will automatically repeat after every 2 hours.

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 for another 2 hours (your update time) to be displayed on your social wall.

Example 2

Assuming that 1 hour 30 minutes of the update time interval is already over and a new social media feed just got posted on one of your selected feed source platforms. Then, this new feed will only take 30 minutes to be displayed on your social wall (once the cycle of update time interval of 2 hours is completed).
