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.

2
The ‘SEO’ settings will expand providing you additional options. Click on ‘Social’.

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

3
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.
