Can I Add Facebook Author Tags

Last update: 10 August, 2017

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 Yoast’s 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.
