Webmasters By Meta, tags, For, The Open, Graph, protocol
The Open Graph protocol
enables any web page to become a rich object in a social graph. For instance, this is
to allow any web page to have the same functionality as any other object on Facebook.
While many different technologies and schemas exist and could be combined together, there isn't a single
which provides enough information to richly represent any web page within the social graph. The
Open Graph protocol builds on these existing technologies and gives developers one thing to implement.
simplicity is a key goal of the Open Graph protocol which has informed many of the technical design decisions .
To turn your web pages into graph objects, you need to add basic metadata to your page. We've based the initial
version of the protocol on RDFa which means that you'll place additional tags in the of your web
page. The four required properties for every page are:
og:title - The title of your object as it should appear within the graph, e.g., "The Rock".
og:type - The type of your object, e.g., "video.movie". Depending on the type you specify, other properties
may also be required.
og:image - An image URL which should represent your object within the graph.
og:url - The canonical URL of your object that will be used as its permanent ID in the graph, e.g., "https://
As an example, the following is the Open Graph protocol markup for The Rock on IMDB :
