SEO and Open Graph settings

PeepSo handles Open Graph in a completely new way. This is a big change! After offering no control at all over Open Graph in the previous version, PeepSo now has settings that let admins set the default image, title, and description.

That’s a big improvement but we’re working with Facebook, so it’s not as straightforward as we might like.

Open Graph handling has been designed to be fully aware of context, shared links and privacy. So if someone posts a picture, adds a description, mood, and location, but sets any privacy setting on the post to not ‘Private,’ when a link to that activity is shared on Facebook, Facebook will only fetch the defaults added in the Open Graph handling settings.

If the post has a ‘Public’ setting, Facebook behaves very differently. It will share the added picture as the Open Graph image, take the title from defaults, and take the description from the post together with the mood and location name. Sharing a link to a user’s public profile will fetch their cover and avatar as the Open Graph image.

That sounds complicated but privacy was our priority and we made sure it works exactly as it should.

You can find SEO and Open Graph settings in WP Admin -> PeepSo -> Configuration -> Advanced
