Facebook launched the Open Graph Protocol nearly 1 year ago to power the Like button. On average 10% of all web search results have Open Graph markup, with many other companies consuming it, in addition to Facebook. Not bad for a 1 year old protocol.
Join the lead developer, Paul Tarjan, for a discussion about the design decisions, tips and tricks, and where the future of the Open Graph Protocol is headed.
Paul Tarjan is a Web Hacker at Facebook. He is a big proponent of open web standards with his work on the Open Graph Protocol, OAuth2, microformats, etc. Previously, Paul worked for Yahoo! co-founding Search Monkey – one of the first major changes to the search result page in 9 years. He has a Master’s degree from Stanford and two bachelors degrees in Pure Math and Computer Science. You’ll often see him riding a ripstick or unicycle while juggling.
