Add Facebook Recommendations Bar widget in Blogger
  • Adding Open Graph Tags

  1. Go to blogger dashboard –> Template –> Edit HTML(Tick the Expand Widget Template Option). 
  2. Find(CTRL+F) for <head> and add the following open graph tags just below it

<!– Begin Open Graph metadata –><b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;’> <meta content=’article’ property=’og:type’/> <meta expr:content=’data:blog.title’ property=’og:site_name’/> <meta expr:content=’data:blog.pageName’ property=’og:title’/> <b:if cond=’data:blog.postImageThumbnailUrl’> <meta expr:content=’data:blog.postImageThumbnailUrl’property=’og:image’/> </b:if><b:else/> <meta expr:content=’data:blog.title’ property=’og:title’/> <meta content=’website’ property=’og:type’/></b:if><meta expr:content=’&quot;en_US&quot;’ property=’og:locale’/><meta expr:content=’data:blog.canonicalUrl’ property=’og:url’/><!– End Open Graph metadata –>
