So we must consider the social media as a gateway for reaching towards broadest audience. But we must make our Blog or website compatible with Open Graph Protocol.


I have already mentioned that Open Graph Protocol is a set of rules. But the main benefit of Open Graph Protocol is that, this will enable your website or blog page to become a rich object in a social graph.
