Getting Open Graph for your Articles

Last update: 30 September, 2016

What is Open Graph?
Open Graph is Facebook’s new protocol which allows 3rd party websites and webapps to connect user activity on-site with user activity on Facebook.

How to enable Open Graph on your website?
The Yoast SEO plugin makes it very easy to add Open Graph tags.

Log in to your WordPress website. When you’re logged in, you will be in your ‘Dashboard’. On the left-hand side, you will see a menu. In that menu, click on ‘SEO’.
The ‘SEO’ settings will expand providing you additional options. Click on ‘Social’.

If you do not see this option, please enable advanced features.

Click on the ‘Facebook’ tab and toggle the ‘Add Open Graph meta data’ to enabled.wpseo_social_facebook
Customize your Open Graph tags by specifying a Facebook admin, adding a default image for pages without images, and more.
Click ‘Save Changes’.
