The first question that comes up about the OG:Description tag is “What is OG:?” ” In this case it does not mean Original Gangster. OG stands for Open Graph which is a tagging protocol (OGP) that is quickly spreading and being adopted across the web as a new standard (you can learn all about OGP at the Open Graph Protocol site ). The second question is “What’s the max character limit of the OG:Description tag”? Short answer, there is none. Long answer 160-300.
