HELLO, FELLOW USERS!
Back in the day, social networks integration with WordPress sites was easy. Everyone can create tokens to access networks API to pull variety of data and embed it on site using theme widgets or plugins. Then networks started to take privacy seriously. AND social network businesses are making money from mined data and not very happy to share their profits. Today in 2020 almost all API calls should be made via apps approved by review teams. We at Flow-Flow kept up with all the changes all these years. We remain relevant to the point we are now officially approved by Facebook to retain almost all the feed sources for Facebook and Instagram we provided since 2014. However the biggest concern all the years for our users was the necessity to update plugin frequently. It was never ‘install and forget’ plugin. To ease updates we even implemented updating mechanism via WP dashboard (for PRO version). But constant changing nature of social networks demands new ways to make things work. Today we are proud to introduce brand new feature for all Flow-Flow users — cloud service called BOOST. The service that helps to offload your site server and to have most up-to-date social networks integration.
FOR LITE VERSION USERS: Any BOOST subscription unlocks all PRO features plus exclusive cloud service features. Purchasing of PRO version will grant you flat price discount for all BOOST plans. Compare all premium options ☞
The BOOST service is for you if you want to:
- Delegate all computing and eliminate all problems related to your server configuration. Some hosting services are banned to access social networks by IP or due to security reasons. Some servers have limited Cron jobs service that interferes with automatic content update for your feeds. It won’t be the case anymore if you activate BOOSTS service.
- Offload your server from burden of storing and distributing feed content. Less queries to server database equal faster page load speed. Content is embedded on your site directly from our servers.
- Guarantee the fastest deployment of code for API changes. We monitor platform health 24/7 and promptly update cloud service code to comply with latest API changes. Yes, you can enable automatic updates for plugins since WordPress 5.5 but it still takes some time to wait for release of new plugin version.
- Access exclusive features in future. Because now we have access to more powerful cloud computing that scales as much as needed we can implement more advanced features.
