New Feature: Auto Post Updater
We’ve finally added one the more important features to the Social Post Spy extension: automatic post updating!
This new feature lets you ‘watch’ any post at a set interval: daily, weekly, or monthly. Then, anytime you visit facebook.com these posts will automatically be updated.
The caveat here is that you must visit facebook.com for the automatic post updater to work. Okay, so it’s not completely automatic but I think it’s close enough to warrant the name.
How It Works
To add a post to your watch list first view the post’s ‘info’ page in your post databank. Check out this post if you don’t know how to view saved posts? Viewing and updating saved posts.
Then click the ‘Watch post’ button at the top of the page:
You can then choose how often you want to update this post. Your choices are daily, weekly, or monthly.
With the post being watched any time you visit facebook.com the post will update automatically if the selected interval has passed. When posts are being updated you’ll see a progress bar in the bottom-right hand corner of the screen..
You can also view all the posts being watched by visiting the ‘Watch list’ in your post databank:
Things to Note
- For the posts to update automatically you must visit facebook.com. They can’t update otherwise.
- Don’t navigate in the tab that is updating the posts until all posts have updated. In the future you’ll be able to navigate facebook.com while posts are being updated.
