Support » Plugin: Facebook for WooCommerce » Graph requests slowing down website

    Hello,

    Is there anything that can be done with the amount of requests to the https://graph.facebook.com/v12.0/ URL?

    These are occurring on nearly all page views on the frontend, and is adding around .7s to the backend processing time. For example if a page takes 1s to render in WordPress it would take 1.7s with this plugin. This adds a noticeable delay and affects end user experience and therefore conversion rates.

    This request time could also vary, and with the Facebook outage a few months ago added 10s+ to the load time.

    For a real world example, a reasonable sized website here with under 1000 visits daily had 15,800 requests to this URL yesterday. Adding a total of 1hr and 26 minutes to the backend time alone. This is definitely not ideal.

    Do these requests need to occur on every page load? and is it required for WordPress to wait for these requests before rendering this page?

    Would it be possible for this to be optimized and perhaps moved to a more efficient method? as currently it’s obviously having a large negative impact on the user.
