What is Social Meta?

First, let’s understand what social meta is and what it does. Social meta is often referred to as Open Graph meta and it was developed by the major social networks – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest.

When a page or post is shared on a social media network, this social meta controls how it will appear.  Each social media site will display this information differently and the way it is displayed can change as social media networks improve their user experience.
