For most online businesses, integrating social media into their website has enabled them to interact with their customers directly. Social media widgets offer customers the ability to have real-time engagement with the business, its products, and like-minded consumers.
Today’s DevOps are increasingly saddled with third party social media widgets (or applications). By relying on external content, developers become dependent on the quality of that third-party content delivery, which, in turn, impacts the performance of their website. Due to lack of third-party element control, developers find difficulty monitoring vital statistics related to network health.
Developers can use externally-based web performance tools to determine if their social media app integration is worth the wait.
