Automate OG image generation with


Published on 2024-03-05 by Dmytro Krasun

I have been focused and been building a screenshot API for developers for two years. I am not tired of it and have plans to improve it further.

But I started to read Million Dollar Weekend by Noah Kagan. The book has such a positive vibe, that it almost immediately inspired me to build a weekend project.

My tweet when I decided to build Open Graph Examples.

And here we go! Just after 3-4 days of building, I am launching [Open Graph Examples](]. Yes, it is not perfect. There is a lot of work to do. But small steps first.

The goal of the project is to have fun and make money, and long term it can be a source of traffic for my main project—ScreenshotOne.

I partnered with Ilias Ism on OG image generator. And not only because it can make me a buck, but I see how synergetic these projects can be.

I plan to add more examples and take the first position on Google for the Open Graph social cards niche.

You can also use a simple public API to fetch Open Graph Examples.

Thank you for reading and thank your for supporting me.

P.S. As with many things that I do, I am open with Open Graph Examples, I encourage you to go and check out Open Graph Examples analytics—yes, it is open!

Frequently asked questions

Answers to the questions people often ask about the Open Graph protocol and Open Graph social cards.

What is Open Graph?
Open Graph is a protocol that allows web pages to become rich objects in a social graph. Essentially, it is a set of meta tags added to the HTML of a webpage that provides information about the content of the page, such as the title, type, URL, image, video, and site name.
How is the Open Graph protocol used?
The information specified in the Open Graph meta tags is used by social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest to display a preview of the webpage when it is shared on their platforms.
What is an Open Graph checker?
An Open Graph checker, or validator, is a tool that inspects your webpage to verify that the Open Graph tags are correctly implemented. It checks for the presence of necessary tags and whether they contain appropriate values that will effectively represent your content on social media platforms.
How to debug the Open Graph protocol?
To debug the Open Graph protocol, ensure correct OG tags are implemented, use validator tools like Facebook Sharing Debugger, Twitter Card Validator or our Open Graph tester to identify and fix errors, and clear social media caches to reflect changes.
What is the purpose of Open Graph images?
