Getting Open Graph Tags to work for you

What are they?

Open Graph (OG) tags are meta tags that give you control over how your content is shared over social media, like LinkedIn and Facebook.

Why are they important?

They allow you to specify the title, description and image, amongst other things, when a URL is shared from your website onto social media.

Much like SEO, it gives your content the best chance of being consumed, by your target audience because it gives you the opportunity to properly tailor its presentation to fit a social media platform.
