Well, you could set a flag in the options table, probably using a Transient. codex.wordpress.org/Transients_API

comment Parse error thrown by get_post_meta
@MarkKaplun Technically, yes. But as the answer by TheDeadMedic below shows, there is a WP-native work-around. So I'd say, let it stand.

comment How to find the exact widget details
@oms JetPack is written and maintained by Automattic, the same company that runs the WordPress.com service. The fact that you have to authenticate to a wordpress.com account even if you aren't using modules that specifically need it is a matter of some debate. But if there are pieces in there you really want to use, it's probably not too big a deal.

Give TheDeadMedic's code a try and see if it works for you. It's what I was suggesting to do.
