The Open Graph 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.

While many different technologies and schemas exist and could be combined
together, there isn't a single technology which provides enough information to
richly represent any web page within the social graph. The Open Graph protocol
builds on these existing technologies and gives developers one thing to
implement. Developer simplicity is a key goal of the Open Graph protocol which
has informed many of
the technical design decisions.

Rain delays for Eli's soccer tournament means unexpected downtime to nerd out! This is relatively new to me, so it's hurting my brain in a good way.
