If New Events Did Not Display Immediately

If you add a new Facebook page event, it will appear in Google calendar automatically but not immediately.

Some observers have suggested Google updates every few hours, but Google themselves quote it may take up to 12 hours.

Although in in exceptional cases we have seen it take as long as 48 hours.

Force A Google Calendar Update

If you want to force an immediate Google calendar update. You can add a ‘version’ parameter in our URL and do the ‘Add by URL’ again.

For example, your first URL is:

https://www.displaysocialmedia.com/app/embed/index.php?embed_id=122

…and you want to force an update. What you’ll have to do is add the ‘version’ parameter, so the URL will now look like this:

https://www.displaysocialmedia.com/app/embed/index.php?embed_id=122&version=2
