Can I Add Facebook Author Tags

Last update: 08 March, 2018

If you want to set up Facebook author tags as described in this article and this article by Facebook, don't fret. It's easy with the Yoast SEO plugin.

  • Make sure Facebook OpenGraph is enabled.
  • Each author on your site should make sure they have filled out the Facebook field in the Contact Info section of their WordPress profile page:
  • You're done!
    TIP: The author name is only clickable when the linked profile allows followers. Turn that feature on with these steps.

Developer filter

You or your developer can use the wpseo_opengraph_author_facebook filter to customize this feature. Returning false will disable the feature.
