i don’t want to disappoint you and maybe this thing has its uses beyond ad metrics or facebook data mining but when i read stuff like this
Facebook introduced Open Graph in 2010. It promotes integration between Facebook and other websites by allowing them to become rich “graph” objects with the same functionality as other Facebook objects.
Put simply, a degree of control is possible over how information travels from a third-party website to Facebook when a page is shared (or liked, etc.). In order to make this possible, information is sent via Open Graph meta tags in the part of the website’s code.
Why Marketers Need to Know about Open Graph
Social media sites are the major drivers of most of the web’s traffic. Consequently, the ability to harness the power of social meta tags is a vital skill for today’s marketers. The tags can affect conversions and click-through rates hugely.
it just makes me want to go take a shower because it feels like i was rolling in literal shit, pushed out by a collective gaping sphincter of facebook marketers and SEO specialists. so i’m not gonna touch any of this with a ten foot pole, let alone implement within tt-rss. ew.
consider me a luddite or whatever, i don’t really care. as far as i’m concerned social media and all this shit invented for and by it can go die in a fire.
e: and yes i understand it’s just a bunch of meta tags and basically no normal person would care, it’s the principle of it that matters to me.
