Does Parse.ly show real-time data?


Parse.ly provides both real-time and historical data.

Real-time data includes the last 24 hours and updates every five seconds. It can be seen throughout the dashboard:

  • On Overview—the first page you’ll see when you log in to the Parse.ly dashboard. It shows a snapshot of what your audience is paying attention to over the last 24 hours, so you can make fast decisions about what content to produce or distribute.
  • In the rest of the dashboard, you can filter almost any page to show real-time data by clicking Pulse.
  • If you have a time aspect chosen such as Last 5 Minutes, you are not looking at data five minutes ago, but constantly-updating data for the previous five minutes.
