Why is og:site_name meta tag useful and how do you use it?

Experience Level: Mid-level
Tags: HTML Open Graph Protocol

Answer

The meta tag with an attribute property that has a value og:site_name defines a site name that will be added to the Open Graph object. The site name is stored in a value of an attribute content.

By adding a meta tag with this property, you define a name of your site that the social networks will be able to read and display to their users.

A web page that has  Open Graph Protocol meta tags enables the page to become an open graph object. This object can then be exported to social networks or other 3rd party systems that understand Open Graph Protocol.
