    I've installed both the facebook and twitter widget on my Galaxy S and can't find the following info anywhere on widgets in general.

    1. Do widgets automatically poll for updated information?
    2. How often, and can I change the frequency of updates?
    3. If I can set preferences for widgets, where are the settings?
    4. Do widgets use a lot of battery?

    I just really want to know if theres any point in using widgets at all, as it's not exactly difficult just to pull the application up.

    thanks

    widgets are not supposed to use a lot of battery, provided they don't depend on systems such as WIFI or GPS to function. To set the refresh rate frequency, open the application, and do so from the settings; or go into your system settings, look for Accounts & Sync, and make sure that application is listed and has sync turned on. I believe you can set the refresh rate from there.
