How to set an object type

Posts and Pages

On each page or post you edit there is an 'Open Graph Object Type' meta box. Simply make a section from there to specify what Object Type the page or post is. Example: If the it's an article, then choose 'article'. If it's a product, choose 'product'. To help you decide what Object Type to choose, go here to learn the differences between them all.

Note: If no selection is made for posts or pages then the Object Type will be 'article', which in most cases is fine.

Home page

To specify what Object Type your homepage is, go to the WordPress Settings -> General page and make a selection from the 'Home page Object Type' field.

Note: If no selection is made for the home page then the Object Type will be 'webpage', which in most cases is probably what you want.
