Open Graph

A Facebook protocol that enables apps developed by third parties to integrate elements from their websites with Facebook's Timeline, News Feed and Ticker. Open Graph defines the meta tags that must be embedded in the Web pages, and Facebook provides essential code samples and a step-by-step wizard for creating the user interactions that take place. See meta tag and Facebook.
