I need to add the notification feature in my Web App like that of Facebook using NODE JS and MONGO DB. How should I start?

Hi ...
first of all sorry about my english :).
I am building a management system web app using MERN stack , and for this project notification must be sent to the admin when for example a user sends a comment.
my question how can i make this notification system real time for example like facebook? so that the admin doesn't have to reload the page to get the notification.

There are probably a whole different bunch of solutions for this. The easiest is probably a piece of javascript that calls your backend every X seconds to see if there is anything new.
