Yes Possible, using hangfire also, it is called Recurring jobs, you need to set a method in a hangfire to call it periodically.

You can fetch new data from api by periodically calling api

 $(document).ready(function() {
  // SET AUTOMATIC call to function for 5000 MILISECONDS (5 SECONDS).
 setInterval('getNewPostsComments()', 5000);

function getNewPostsComments(){
  //Call server side method using AJAX
  //or Call api using Javascript
  //append new data

Whether you are pulling data from Server side C# code or front end code using javascript, from graph api, you can periodically call the function using AJAX to fetch data from api and if there are new posts or comments append it in your html code.
