ago to power the Like button. On average 10% of all web search results have Open Graph markup,
with [many](https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/open-graph-protocol/NW1yKr9wAB0) [other](https://groups.google.com/forum/?show_docid=6d6831cf046456e3#!topic/open-graph-protocol/d_NNHb5h1AM) [companies](http://bing.com) consuming it, in addition to Facebook.
Not bad for a 1 year old protocol.

decisions, tips and tricks, and where the future of the Open Graph
Protocol is headed.
