##############################################
# what is opengraph protocol:

The Open Graph protocol enables any web page to become a rich object in a social graph. For instance, this is used on Facebook to allow any web page to have the same functionality as any other object on Facebook.


##############################################
# exemple of result on version 1.0.0. this piece of code is auto-inserted in the meta data of all your vBulletin pages to help facebook and other engines to recognise your content.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

you can see the result on the screenshot... facebook is able to grab the proper information, even if you did not activate any facebook plugin... because opengraph is not only about facebook, it is also about Google and other search engines that now use this protocol... and many social networks!

# how to install the product?

go to the AdminCP >> vBulletin Options >> Nexia's OpenGraph Protocol

this product is not interfering with the actual Facebook product inside vBulletin, it is adding more precise information if needed.

You only need to fill the OG:IMAGE, right? Everything else is added automatically? Because it's the only option I see. And what's the recommended (default) size of the image?

exactly, only that setting... the other features will be added in a different release...

there is no recommanded images anymore... in the past, a max of 250x250 was suggested, but facebook and google now resize these images, so no more trouble...
