What Are Networking API’s?
Networking API’s allow Monarch to automatically grab follower counts from your social profiles and display them on your website. This means that, for the networks that support it, you never have to update your follower count since the plugin continually checks the API and caches the count for you. Only certain networks support API calls, and each of them need to be configured a little differently. For a full list of supported networks and their installation instructions, keep reading.
