Performance and Security

Smart caching with server task allows to deliver content blazingly fast without long page loading. It’s especially crucial when many networks are pulled or you have big traffic. It’s great to use this plugin for streaming your news, photos, reviews and any other content you can imagine!

Plugin doesn’t expose your private details (like tokens, app IDs and app secrets) to browser so we provide 100% security for any sensitive data.

How it works

You create streams in Flow-Flow WordPress Social Stream admin and copy generated shortcodes. Then you put these shortcodes in any block on any page of your site. When social stream is shown first time, it’s got cached (takes more time for initial caching but then it will show blazingly fast) and rest of visitors see this cache for cache lifetime. So for example if you have set 20 min cache and 10000 users visit your site within these 20 min, it’s only one time plugin will request API to pull data, for the rest of time users will see cached data almost instantly. Considering that server runs cache renew task in background it guarantees plugin’s amazing performance.

Reviews

Great plugin with very good support

We installed the premium version of this plugin for one of our clients’ sites and it gives a beautiful social media feed.
We also had some quite specific requirements for the appearance of it and support from the Flow Flow team was very fast and efficient and gave us the exact setup we needed. Very impressed.

Hace lo que promete

Se instala en breve, se siguen las instrucciones y se inserta el código en la página o post. Hace lo que promete en su versión gratuita. Tal vez debería mostrar de forma más fácil como integrar cada “Feed”. Recomendable esta versión gratuita.

Easy and effective!

I used it to create a social stream on my site and I`ve done it in a few minutes! Now I have an automatically updated page without any effort! Thanks for such an amazing tool!

Missing the Shortcode

I just installed the plugin and followed the guideline step by step, but I am still missing the shortcode. Anyway, I had log out and re-login to fix it up. Now is working. Nice plugin considering is FREE.
