Open Graph meta data markup on websites built in the Editor

Websites built in the Editor automatically receive Open Graph meta data markup once they are published. This ensures that richer previews and thumbnails are displayed when the website is shared on social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and many others. 

  What is Open Graph?

Open Graph is a technology first introduced by Facebook that has subsequently received support from many other social media platforms. By integrating Open Graph meta tags into your page's content, you can identify which elements of your page you want to show when someone shares your page on social media.

In other words, you get a degree of control over how information travels from your website to Facebook (and other social media) when a page is shared. The information is sent via Open Graph meta tags in the <head> part of the website’s code. 


Open Graph tags are automatically added to your website's pages, blog posts and E-commerce product pages.
