How is Social Status calculated?
The Social Status function passes queries to 6 different social media servers to get the total count of links to each post. Then it orders the posts according to their link popularity. The post with most links on social media sites will be ranked first and vice-versa. So that it doesn’t overload your server it will get 10 links at a time.
Since getting information through 6 different servers for each link can become problematic if you have a ton of posts, we introduced the caching system. It will cache the popularity of each link (post) and save it to the database. You can set the caching time to number of minutes according to your needs (default is 20 minutes).
