View Full Version : facebook style news feed.

Aug 11th, 2012, 01:30 PM
Hi Guys and Gals,

I am trying to build a face book like news feed and would like to update the news feed with the latest posts / status updates...

I am currently using asp to load all the data on another page, and then using jquery.load to bring the new feed in...

I am then setting up a recursive function that reload the news feeds every 3 seconds...

the only issue is, this is really crappy with images, they constantly keep dl'ing, and i think there is a better way of doing this...

Does anyone have any recommendations on how to do this?

Can i compare the current loaded news feed with the one on the external page, and then reload it based on the new changes?

Thanks for any insight into this issue,
