I'm not sure if this question has been asked before here or if it is appropriate to ask (I searched through stackoverflow and couldn't find one). If it is not relevant to this forum please let me close this thread.
Why isn't stackoverflow not having new questions that update realtime? I'm talking something like the facebook's sidebar that updates frequently(or whenever somebody comments or likes a page). If something similar to that is provided for new questions then refreshing each time to view new questions could be avoided.
There have been a lot of conversations for related questions in stackoverflow but I seldom found anything for real time update of new questions. Is it a feature that is already available and I am missing or is it not? I am aware that there are a lot of questions that are being asked simultaneously but updating the questions that the user is particularly interested in would be a great feature.
