Open Graph

The Facebook Open Graph tags are a way to describe your page to Facebook. When utilized, you can easily control the title, description, image, and other information that is shown in a user's wall when a page is Liked, Shared, or Commented on. This helps to ensure that the message and brand for your pages is always how you want it to be.

Open Graph tags can also be combined with Open Graph Actions to create powerful, and automatic, sharing of your content to your user's Facebook wall. See the video below for a demonstration:

The Open Graph support in JFBConnect is extensive and powerful, yet flexible and extremely easy to implement.

Default Site-Wide Open Graph Easy-Tags

JFBConnect easily lets you set the default Open Graph tags across your Joomla site. This simplifies Open Graph setup by letting you immediately specify the image, title, and description that should be used for all your pages.

Per-Page Overrides

On individual pages where you want to specify a unique title, description, image or other information about your page, you can use the simple JFBConnect Open Graph tags to override the defaults. Simply use the following format in an Joomla article, custom HTML module, template file, or anywhere else on the page, and JFBConnect will do the rest:

{SCOpenGraph image=http://domain.com/betterimage.jpg}
{SCOpenGraph title=My Great Article about Facebook Integration}
{SCOpenGraph description=Facebook integration with Joomla is made extremely simple using JFBConnect}

Automatic Open Graph Tags

If you've already created great title and description meta tags, JFBConnect will automatically use those if the overrides above aren't set.

Additionally, for Joomla and K2 articles, there's an easy option to have JFBConnect set the first image in the article as the Open Graph image for that page. This helps to automate the tagging process even further, and makes your articles stand out even more in a user's wall.

With the launch of v2.0 of the Facebook Graph API over 2 years ago, a new review process was also implemented for all Facebook Applications. The review process is Facebook's way to verify that deeper integration features on your site are abiding by Facebook's Terms of Service. There's a lot to understand about the process and some of it may surprise you. Some JFBConnect features like posting to your Facebook Page usually don't even need to go through the review process. For the features that do need review, what's the process and how do you proceed? Read our blog post to find out. https://lnkd.in/eKbiwbb
