How to enable Facebook’s Open Graph meta tags
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. If you don’t see the ‘Social’ setting in your ‘SEO’ menu, please enable your advanced settings first.
- Click on ‘Social’.
- Click on the ‘Facebook’ tab and toggle the ‘Add Open Graph meta data’ to enabled.
- Customize your Open Graph tags by specifying a Facebook admin, adding a default image for pages without images, and more.
- Click ‘Save Changes’.
