...Check completed. Negative; they mean two different things. OpenGraph is not Facebook-specific. –  Robert Harvey Mar 29 '12 at 21:57
Then why opengraph tag have f in it? –  Somnath Muluk Mar 30 '12 at 4:12
Facebook paid SE some money to put it there. That's what "sponsored tag" means. Anyone can sponsor any tag, AFAIK. –  Robert Harvey Mar 30 '12 at 4:14

refers to the protocol originally created for Facebook (though most users have been tagging them with both)

For example, Google Plus accepts this protocol.

refers to the Open Graph specifically in relation with Facebook Graph API.

I suppose one should change the descriptions of these tags as to prevent further confusion.

Then f should have been removed from opengraph tag. –  Somnath Muluk Mar 30 '12 at 4:13
@Som: The f indicates that opengraph is a sponsored tag. Facebook has paid to put their f on that tag. See this FAQ for more information. –  Cody Gray Mar 30 '12 at 4:21
@SomnathMuluk It does give confusion but it is Facebook who started up the OG Protocol so yeah I think if they wanted to sponsor the tag it should be okay. For now the tag info needs to be changed for opengraph –  phwd Mar 30 '12 at 4:23
